Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY – Dozens of Israeli settlers headed by member of the Knesset for Likud Yehuda Glick broke on Monday morning into the courtyards of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound via the Maghriba gate, and under heavy protection by Israeli occupation troops.
Jerusalemite sources reported that the settlers carried out provocative tours across the mosque’s courtyards and received explanations on the alleged “Temple Mount” delivered by Yehuda Glick, amid repeated attempts to perform Talmudic rituals in the courtyards.
The sources added that Muslim worshippers, educational students, and guards of the mosque who were present at the mosque defended it by chants and Takbeer and hampered the settlers from roaming it freely.
The al-Aqsa mosque Compound exposes on a daily basis to the storming of the Israeli settlers, at which they perform Talmudic rituals and discrete its sanctity.
The Israeli occupation seeks through its storming to al-Aqsa Mosque Compound to devote temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
