Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Dozens of extremist Israeli settlers on Wednesday morning broke into the courtyards of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound via the Maghariba gate, under heavy guard of Israel’s special forces and intervention troops.
Jerusalemite sources reported that the groups of Israeli settlers stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque in the early morning hours and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards.
The sources reported that Muslim worshipers and students who were present at the mosque defended it with chants and Takbeer (saying Allah is Greatest).
The al-Aqsa Mosque compound exposes on a daily basis to the storming of the Israeli settlers, at which the settlers perform Talmudic rituals and discrete the sanctuary of the mosque.
Israel seeks through its storming to the al-Aqsa to devout the temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
