Close to 47,988 right-wing Israeli settlers raided Al-Aqsa Mosque between September 2021 and September 2022, with the right-wing Temple Mount Administration saying this year was the busiest for Israeli settlers’ storming Al-Aqsa in the apartheid Israeli occupation’s history.
The Temple Mount Administration said this was a 65 percent increase compared to the previous year. The Jewish New Year – Rosh Hashanah – was marked on Saturday; Jewish holidays see an increase in right-wing Israeli settlers raiding Al-Aqsa Mosque, with occupation forces limiting Palestinians’ access to the Muslim holy site.
In the past weeks, the so-called Jewish Temple Mount groups have called for Jews to increase their raids of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the holiday season.
On Sunday alone, Israeli occupation forces escorted 332 Israeli Jewish settlers who raided Al-Aqsa Mosque and provoked Muslim Palestinian worshippers.
Palestinian factions, institutions, and figures have called for Palestinian to increase their existence at Al-Aqsa Mosque as the Israeli occupation imposes tight restrictions on their entry to make way forIsraeli settler raids of the site in violation of international law.
