By omitting the fact that Al-Aqsa Mosque is in occupied territory, you exclude important context regarding the dynamic between Palestinians and Israeli forces. The context of occupation, including the oppression of Palestinians and discriminatory Israeli policies, explains the high levels of tension and violence that can take place in this location. Excluding the fact that East Jerusalem is occupied misinforms readers, who may be led to believe that Al-Aqsa Mosque is located in Israel. This can be particularly confusing as your article discusses the actions of “Israeli police.”
