Ammon News - A Palestinian identified as Mohammad Khaled al-Osaibi, 26, from the town of Houra in the Naqab desert in the south of Israel, was shot and killed by Israeli police around midnight while he was near Chain Gate, one of the gates leading into Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, according to Israeli reports.

Police claimed Osaibi attempted to snatch a weapon from a border guard when he was shot and killed.

However, witnesses said the police killed Osaibi in cold blood and from a very short distance after he intervened to help a Palestinian woman who was being assaulted by the police and forced to leave Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The police shut down all the gates to Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City following the incident and attacked shopkeepers and vendors in the area. The gates were later reopened.
