Israeli extremist settlers stormed al-Aqsa Mosque

Jerusalem/PNN/

Hordes of Israeli extremist settlers stormed on early Sunday morning the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, in Occupied Jerusalem, via the Maghareba Gate.

The break-in was carried out under heavy escort by Israeli soldiers and special police troops.

The fanatic Israeli settlers reportedly performed provocative rituals and chanted anti-Muslim slogans.

A group of Muslim women have been maintaining vigil outside the al-Aqsa after the Israeli occupation police prevented them from entering the Mosque to perform their prayers.

Tension has been running high in Occupied Jerusalem as Israeli fanatics stepped up assaults on the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Observers said the break-ins make part of Israeli intents to Judaize the mosque and divide it spatially and temporally between Muslims and Jews.
