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.
