Some 36 Palestinians were injured when clashes erupted Tuesday with Israeli occupation forces at Al Aqsa holy mosque's compound.

During the third consecutive day of violent clashes at Al Aqsa, the Israeli forces stormed the compound and damaged the doors of the southern Mosque.

Israeli forces stormed the compound via al Maghariba Gate and assaulted Palestinian worshipers, fired stun grenades, tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets at them.

They also proceeded to storm al Qibili Mosque, damaging its doors, in order to detain Palestinian worshipers barricading themselves inside.

Meanwhile, all Palestinians were denied entry into the Mosque compound by Israeli police stationed at the gates, causing tensions to rise.

Palestinian worshipers gathered near the gates leading to the Mosque, demanding allowing them free access and preventing Jewish settlers' intrusion.

The clashes followed two days of similar incidents at the Mosque compound, with many Palestinians injured and detained by police.
