Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades at Muslim worshipers. Mohamed Subaih, the League's assistant secretary general for Palestine said the meeting will be held at the request of Palestine to discuss the serious situation in the holy city where Israeli occupation authorities are seeking to exercise full authority over the third holiest Muslim shrine and to bar Muslims from the compound to allow for excavations and execution of Jewish plans at the site.
