The Israeli occupation forces are continuing their strict military reinforcements in Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City to secure the settlers' incursions into the mosque.

The Israeli occupation forces impose strict security measures on Jerusalemites and the people of the interior while deploying in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and on its roads, especially along the path of the incursions.

Settler groups resumed their incursions early last week, nearly 3 weeks after stopping the incursions, following the confrontations of Ramadan 28 and the subsequent response to the resistance and the popular uprising in historic Palestine.

The occupation government decided to prevent settlers from storming the mosque 3 weeks ago after the Palestinians responded to a massive storming of the 28th of last Ramadan, and the resistance in Gaza supported Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

These incursions come at the invitation of the extremist temple groups, which are putting all their weight to impose the incursions on a larger scale and to proceed with the plan to divide Al-Aqsa in time and space.

On the other hand, Jerusalemite calls for gathering, marching, and bonding to Al-Aqsa Mosque continue at all times and throughout the week, to protect it from the occupation schemes, repel extremists' incursions, and thwart settlement and Judaization schemes.
