Al-Qastal News Network stated that 831 extremist settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque during the past week, under the protection of the Israeli occupation police.
The network stated, in a report, that settlers provocatively roamed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa during the incursions, and performed Talmudic rituals in the eastern region, coinciding with the spread of the heavily armed occupation forces.
It pointed out that clashes erupted between the Israeli occupation police and the guards, due to a settler’s prayer at the al-Silsilah Gate in a loud and provocative voice.
It reported that a settler assaulted the guard, Samer Abu Qwaider, and instead of arresting the assailant, Abu Qwaider was arrested and taken for interrogation, and then released on the condition that he was banished from Al-Aqsa Mosque for a week, subject to renewal.
The Network pointed out that the Israeli occupation police attacked – last Monday – the Muslim worshippers’ arrivals to the occupied city of Jerusalem in order to commemorate the Isra and Mi’raj.
