Israeli police allow dozens of settlers to defile Aqsa Mosque

Days of Palestine -

The Israeli occupation police on Thursday morning allowed anew dozens of Jewish settlers to enter the Aqsa Mosque and tour its courtyards.

According to the Islamic Awqaf Authority, about 50 settlers desecrated the Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards.

The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Israeli occupation 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.
