Days of Palestine – Jerusalem
Today, Thursday, 60 settlers stormed the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the protection of the Israeli occupation police, and wandered in its courtyards, specifically the courtyard of the Dome of the Rock.
According to local sources, 60 settlers entered the Mosque through al-Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards in groups under police protection.
The Islamic Endowments Department reported that settlers set out from the Mughrabi Gate, with the protection of dozens of Israeli police and through successive groups.
The endowments said that, for the first time since the beginning of the organized incursions into Al-Aqsa in 2003, a single incursion of settlers under the protection of the Israeli police was recorded.
Israeli authorities allow settler incursions to the compound since 2003, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.
