Jerusalem – Ma’an - A Palestinian and four Israeli police officers were injured, and dozens of Palestinians detained during confrontations spurred by heavy Israeli military presence and restricted access for Palestinians to the Old City of Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The injury brings up to 42 the number of Palestinians wounded by Israeli forces during the past week, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), with 18 from Jerusalem confrontations including two children.
Gaza, October 9, 2009, (Pal Telegraph)-Scores of protesters from the Palestinian, Arab and European communities marched in front of the headquarters of UN Human Rights Council in protest against the decision to postpone the vote on Richard Goldstone's report which accuses Israel of perpetrating war crimes against Palestinians. Member of the European Campaign to End Siege on Gaza, Anwar Al Gharbi said in the protest that this move aims at sending a message of objection against what happened.
"We are very upset about the postponement of the report which was about to pave the way for the condemnation of the Israeli occupation by committing crimes against the Palestinians. We are shocked and furious over the decision of Palestinian Authority to postpone the report for Six months. Palestinian Authority saved the occupation from court." Said Al Gharbi.
"Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel," the official IRNA news agency quoted Mojtaba Zolnour as saying.
He is a deputy representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the elite Guards force. Iranian officials have also in the past said the country would retaliate in case of any Israeli or U.S attack on it.
Earlier this year, a senior commander said Iranian missiles could reach Israeli nuclear sites. Israel is believed to be the only nuclear-armed Middle East state.
The Fatah Central Council has called for a general strike in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip on Friday in protest of Israel's "measures against al-Aksa Mosque."
The call comes as the faction and its leader, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, are facing a wave of unprecedented protests over the decision to withdraw support for the UN fact-finding mission's report into Operation Cast Lead.
The council expressed "deep concern" over Israel's security measures in Jerusalem following an outburst of violence over the past week.
It said Israel was "besieging" the mosque, preventing Muslims from reaching the area and "colluding" with Jewish extremists by enabling them to enter the compound.
