Scores of Israeli Settlers Invade Al-Aqsa Mosque

B.M | DOP -

Dozens of Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, invaded on Sunday morning, September 18, the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and performed Talmudic rituals.

The Department of Islamic Endowment in Jerusalem reported earlier today that tens of settlers broke into Al-Aqsa via its Al-Maghareba gate, performing provocative rituals.

It added that Israeli settlers received lectures about the alleged Temple during their tours, and performed provocative rituals at the eastern area of Al-Aqsa, under the protection of Israeli occupation forces.

These incursions coincide with settlers’ calls for mass raids in Al-Aqsa to commemorate the so-called Jewish holidays.

In addition, the Israeli occupation government has recently decided to “allow the Jewish settlers to raid Al-Aqsa Mosque despite their fears that this would escalate Palestinian anger.”

On a daily basis, Israeli settlers, under the protection of Israeli occupation forces, break into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, performing provocative Talmudic rituals.

Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation imposes suffocating restrictions on Palestinians’ entry to Al-Aqsa, routinely banning Muslim worshipers from entering their holy site.
