Af.M | DOP -

Dozens of colonial Israeli settlers invaded Wednesday, 4 April 2023, the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and performed provocative rituals.

Local media sources reported that Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa and performed provocative Talmudic rituals in some of its yards under the Israeli occupation forces’ protection. 

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces are widely spread across the compound of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to protect the colonial settlers, prohibiting the presence of Palestinians.

Israeli forces brutally attacked the Palestinian worshipers including women at Al-Aqsa mosque and forcibly expelled them from its courtyards to pave way for Israeli settlers’ incursions into the mosque.

The Union of Temple Mount Groups called yesterday on the Israeli settlers to invade Al-Aqsa Mosque during the so-called Jewish Passover holiday and to offer animal sacrifices in its courtyards.

The right-wing Temple Mount Groups mobilized their colonial settler to carry out large-scale incursions into the Al-Aqsa mosque and offer animal sacrifices in coincide with the days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Illegal settlers intend to perform provocative Talmudic rituals, read biblical passages aloud and collectively, and conduct evocative dances in Al-Aqsa Mosque yards.

Colonial settlers’ backed by the Israeli occupation forces repeatedly invade Muslims and holy places in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem in a flagrant violation of all international conventions and laws, guaranteeing Palestinian people’s right to worship in their sacred places.

In 2022, 56670 colonial Israeli settlers invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards and performed Talmudic provocative rituals in its courtyards, according to Palestinian figures.
