PNN/ Jerusalem/

More than 1000 Israeli settlers in consecutive groups on Sunday morning stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, under heavy protection by the Israeli Occupation forces, entering it from the Magharba Gate.

This follows a night of raids on the old city of Jerusalem by Israeli settlers, who raided its streets and carried out Talmudic rituals in front of the gates of the Al-Aqsa mosque, especially the Bab al-Qatanin, on the eve of what they call “the destruction of the temple.”

Local sources in Jerusalem reported that large groups of settlers surrounded the courtyard of Al-Buraq Wall (the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque) for hours and went to the Al-Qataneen market in Al-Wad Street, which ended with Al-Aqsa Mosque and performed prayers, From this side with strict security of the occupation forces.

They pointed to several attempts by settlers yesterday to break into the al-Aqsa from different gates because of the closure of the Magharba gate on Friday and Saturday, while a group of settlers staged prayers in the Bab al-Rahma Islamic Cemetery.
