Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Since early Monday, a state of palpable tension has prevailed over the courtyards of al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, when an Israeli police member insulted Allah near the mosque’s Manuscript Centre.
This comes in conjunction with the breaking of dozens of Israeli extremist settlers, who were guarded heavily by Israel’s special forces, into the courtyards of the mosque via the Maghariba gate.
The official of public relations and media department of Islamic endowments Firas Aldebs stated that 49 extremist settlers stormed al-Aqsa Mosque this morning, and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards.
He pointed out that one of the settlers got down on the ground to perform Talmudic rituals near al-Rahma gate, east of the mosque.
Aldebs indicated that the setters received explanations on the alleged temple during the storming, noting that they were met by al-Aqsa guards.
The official added that Muslims worshipers and educational circle students defended the mosque by chants and Takbeer.
In the same context, some 15 members of Israeli intelligence broke into al-Aqsa Mosque and toured its chapels.
The Israeli occupation police stationed at the gates of al-Aqsa Mosque Compound keeps imposing its strict measures on the entry of Muslim worshipers to the mosque, violating the right to freedom of religion.
It is worth mentioning that Al- Aqsa mosque exposes on a daily basis to the storming of the Israeli settlers, at which they perform Talmudic rituals and desecrate the sanctity of the mosque.
Israel seeks through its storming to al -Aqsa to devote the temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
