Days of Palestine – Jerusalem
Dozens of extremist Jewish settlers desecrated Thursday the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem under tight police protection.
At least 217 settlers, including 20 intelligence officers, entered the Mosque in different groups through its Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards under police guard, according to the Islamic Awqaf Administration.
During their tours at the Islamic holy site, the settlers received lectures from rabbis about the alleged temple mount and a number of them provocatively performed Talmudic prayers.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation police imposed movement restrictions on Muslim worshipers at the Aqsa Mosque’s entrances and gates.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers and police forces in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
