These incursions are part of the daily tours that start from Mughrabi Gate to Bab Al Silsila, passing through the Bab Al Rahma area, during which Talmudic rituals are performed.

In addition, the Israeli occupation intelligence arrested the president of Silwan Club, Marwan Al-Ghoul, after it stormed his home in the central neighborhood in the town of Silwan.

In addition, the Israeli occupation forces stormed Silwan Club, conducting searches and sabotaging its contents.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is witnessing daily, except for Friday and Saturday, incursions and violations by settlers and the occupation police, and on two periods in the morning and evening.

The settler incursions came despite the continued complete closure of the Holy City, and the emphasis placed on Jerusalemites to prevent them from accessing the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Calls continued for all Muslims in the occupied Palestinian interior, the people of Jerusalem, and those who can reach the Al-Aqsa residents of the West Bank, to intensify the journey towards the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and rebuild it with worshipers and stationers, in order to thwart the settlers' plans.
