Extremist settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque


Dozens of Jewish extremist settlers on Sunday broke into the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ al-Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs said in a statement that today’s raid was conducted through al-Magharebah Gate in successive groups under the heavy protection of Israeli special police, who restricted Muslim worshippers’ access to the mosque and seized their identification cards.

The settlers performed Talmudic rituals, provocatively toured the Mosque’s yards, and listened to explanations about the purported "Temple Mount", it added.
