Groups of Israeli Jewish settlers on Sunday, August 7, invaded the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the protection of Israeli occupation forces and performed provocative rituals.
Local sources reported that groups of Israeli settlers flocked at Al-Buraq Western Wall and near the Al-Maghariba gate, Commemorating the so-called Tisha B’Av “the destruction of the Temple”.
The sources added that a large group of settlers headed by Yahuda Ghulaik started the incursion in the early hours of Sunday, performing Talmudic provocative rituals.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces deployed in the area, assaulting Palestinian worshipers and forcibly evacuating them from the Mosque. The Israeli forces detained two Palestinian men from Al-Aqsa.
Last night, the Israeli occupation forces closed the streets of Jerusalem leading to Al-Aqsa Mosque in an attempt to prevent Palestinian youth from entering the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and to secure provocative marches by settlers at the Bab Al-Amud area.
Israeli occupation authorities impose movement restrictions on Muslim worshipers’ entry to Al-Aqsa. Meanwhile, Jewish settlers carry out daily raids in Al-Aqsa Mosque in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
