Video: Settlers continue Al-Aqsa Mosque provocations

PNN/Jerusalem/

Around 45 extremist settlers broke into Al-Aqsa mosque compound this morning from al-Maghrebi gate under armed protection from Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) and special units of Israeli police.

Tensions rose in and around the mosque due to the provocative incursion of the settlers into the holy site, and especially after so-called ‘Temple Mount’ organisations called recently for the area to be closed to Muslims during the Jewish holiday commemorating the ‘Destruction of the Temple’.

The settlers were met by the worshipers stationed at Al-Aqsa chanting ‘Allahu akbar’ (God is great).
