Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Israeli extremist settlers, guarded heavily by Israeli special forces and rapid intervention troops, broke on early Monday into courtyards of the al-Aqsa Mosque Compound via the Maghariba Gate.
Jerusalemite sources reported that 26 settlers broke in early morning hours into the mosque and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards.
The sources added Muslims worshipers and educational circle students who were present at the mosque defended it by chants and Takbeer.
It is worth mentioning that the 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.
The Israeli occupation continues its criminal and racist policies and practices against Jerusalemites, including executions, destruction of properties, and prevention Palestinian worshipers from entering al-Aqsa.
Israel seeks through its storming to the al -Aqsa to devote the temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
