Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem
The Israeli occupation police on Thursday morning provided protection for dozens of extremist Jewish settlers as they were touring the Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards.
Groups of 74 settlers, including rabbi Yehuda Glick, desecrated the Mosque under police guard in the morning, according to Quds Press.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Israeli police close al-Maghariba Gate, which is used by Jews to enter the Mosque, at 10:30 am after the settlers complete their morning tours at the holy site. Later in the afternoon, the same gate is reopened for evening tours by settlers.
During the presence of settlers inside the Mosque compound, entry restrictions are imposed on Muslim worshipers at the entrances leading to the Mosque and their IDs are seized until they leave the holy place.
