Dozens of Israeli Colonial Settlers Invade Courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque

Af.M | DOP -

Dozens of Israeli colonial settlers invaded Monday, 23 January 2023, the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, performing provocative rituals under the Israeli occupation forces’ protection. 

Local media sources reported that Israeli colonial settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa and performed Talmudic provocative rituals in some of its courtyards.

Hundreds of Israeli well-armed forces deployed in Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards to guard colonial settlers’ incursions into Muslim holy sites in the occupied Jerusalem. 

As part of a decades-old accord between Jordan and the Israeli occupation, non-Muslims are not allowed to perform any religious rituals inside the confines of Al-Aqsa Mosque, nor are Israeli symbols allowed to be displayed.

Israeli colonial settlers repeated violations of Muslim, as well as Christian, symbols as a deliberate attempt to Judaise the occupied Jerusalem, with the progressive expulsion of the local population; the Palestinians.

In 2022, 56670 colonial Israeli settlers invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards and performed Talmudic provocative rituals in its courtyards, breaking decades-old agreements.
