Dozens of Israeli colonial settlers invaded on Monday morning, August 15, the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces.
The Department of Islamic Endowment in Jerusalem reported on Monday morning that dozens of settlers broke into Al-Aqsa in successive groups, via Mughrabi Gate, performing provocative rituals.
Since Jerusalem was occupied in 1967, the occupation authorities have controlled the Mughrabi Gate, allowing settlers to carry out daily incursions.
Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holy site for Muslims, is subjected to daily incursions on daily basis except on Fridays and Saturdays by Israeli settlers protected by Israeli occupation forces.
Israeli occupation authorities impose movement restrictions on Muslim worshipers’ entry to Al-Aqsa. Yesterday, Israeli occupation banished two activists from Al-Aqsa for periods ranging from one week to several months.
