Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY – Dozens of extremist Israeli settlers on Thursday broke into the courtyards of the al-Aqsa Mosque Compound via the Maghariba gate, heavily guarded by the Israeli occupation forces.
Islamic Waqf Department in occupied Jerusalem said that the settlers broke into the al-Aqsa Mosque in groups, carried out provocative tours in its courtyards, performed Talmudic rituals and received explanations on the alleged ‘Temple Mount’.
Meanwhile, worshipers, educational students, and guards of the al-Aqsa mosque who were present there defended it by chants and Takbeer (saying Allah Akbar), and hampered the settlers from roaming it freely.
The Israeli occupation authorities imposed tight restrictions on Palestinian worshippers seeking to access the Al-Aqsa Mosque and seize their IDs at its gates.
It’s noteworthy that 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.
‘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.
