Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY – At least 100 Jewish settlers stormed on Monday morning al-Aqsa courtyards from the Moroccan Gate backed by the Israeli police, Director of al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage Mahmoud Abu Atta said.
He told ALRAY about 106 extremist settlers stormed the mosque in small groups and toured in the mosque’s compound.
They tried to perform Talmudic prayers but the Muslim prayers prevented them.
The soldiers intensified restrictions at all the gates of al-Aqsa gates, imposing restrictions on the entrance of Palestinian prayers, Abu Atta pointed out that.
Extremist Jewish settlers and politicians have lately been violating the sanctity of Al-Aqsa Mosque almost on a daily basis and always under the protection of armed occupation forces, who often attack Palestinian worshipers trying to protect their holy site.
