Over 330 Israeli Settlers Invade Aqsa Mosque

M.Y | DOP -

Days of Palestine – Jerusalem

Dozens of extremist Jewish settlers invaded Tuesday, August 02, 2022 the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem under tight police protection.

At least 332 settlers entered the Mosque in different groups through its Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards under police guard, according to al-Qastal news website.

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.

In a related context, Jerusalemite figures and activists have called anew on their compatriots across the occupied Palestinian territories to intensify their presence at the Aqsa Mosque to protect their holy site against desecration and Judaization.

The renewed Jerusalem calls for protecting the Aqsa Mosque came as extremist Jewish groups intend to organize mass settler break-ins at the Islamic holy site in the coming days to mark what they call the destruction of the temple.
