JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces resealed the al-Rahma Gate, one of the Al-Aqsa Mosque gates, with a lock and chain after a group of Palestinian youths were able to break the lock and open the gate for worshipers, on Monday.

A Ma'an reporter present at the scene said that clashes erupted after Israeli forces resealed the gate.

Israeli forces assaulted Palestinian worshipers and students of Sharia school, and detained and assaulted five Palestinians, including a woman.

Israeli forces then sealed off all gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and prevented worshipers from entering the compound.

Meanwhile, dozens of Israeli settlers raided the compound via the Moroccans Gate under armed security by Israeli forces.

Israeli police forces had sealed off the gate with locks and iron chains on Sunday.
