11:07 am
and speaking to other medics, it was incredible. one man said that he had been trained as a medic. he'd had decades of experience operating in other conflicts. so when we kosovo, syria, iraq, he said he been trained to save lives, but he said that he was so angry by what russia has done here. russia, he said, was turning him potentially into a murderer. because he now was that determined to defend his country. will bring him more on our top story and that is what transpired at an up some mos compounder is really forces and again fight rubber, bullets at palestinian worshippers. there let's speak to stephanie decker, whose joining us from occupied is jerusalem. so at least 31 people have been injured. stephanie, tell us a more about what happened. yes, this was in the early hours around 6 o'clock in the morning. i had a police presence at the entrance to the compound. according to worshippers,

11:09 am
garza and the west bank because it's also a jewish holiday. the last couple of days of pos over, but worshippers have been allowed to come from the west bank. so i think it gives you an indication of the real will to try and calm the ground here because of the escalation that we've seen over the last 2 is particularly week or so. also just briefly mentioning those, you know, those incursions by the ultra far what, right when jews that cause a lot of tension with between the palestinians because they say that it seems to be a change in the status quo. they, they're calling to be able to pray on the side something that is band under the agreement between jordan and the israel that stopped from now until the end of ramadan. 2 so again, as you can see, business as usual here in damascus gate many, many people coming to worship to prayer, which is going to take place in about an hour from now. thank you so much stephanie jennifer report from occupied east jerusalem. and us, foreign minister says he and bores johnson have discussed the urgent need for
