Protected by heavily armed Israeli forces, scores of Israeli colonial settlers invaded Thursday, September 15, the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and performed provocative rituals, breaking decades-old agreements.
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.

Meantime, Israeli occupation forces are widely spread across the compound of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to protect the colonial settlers, banning the presence of Palestinians.
In recent days, the holy sites, most notably Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem have seen increased breakings by Israeli settlers in conjunction with the ‘Hebrew holidays’ celebrations.
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.
In 2003, the Waqf’s management of Al-Aqsa visits was revoked by Israeli authorities. Since then, Israeli forces have allowed colonial settlers to break into the site on a near-daily basis.
In this vein, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid gave the green light for the colonial settlers’ incursions into the Al-Aqsa mosque and displayed the Israeli symbols in what Palestinians see as a provocation of their feelings and a desecration of the sanctity of the mosque.
