On Saturday morning, extremist settlers set up a tent in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem, on the occasion of the Jewish “Throne Day”.
Eyewitnesses reported that settlers set up a tent in the Old City in front of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, to celebrate the “Throne Day”, which began on Friday.
For the second week in a row, the occupation forces continue to close the city of Jerusalem and impose a complete siege on it, under the pretext of limiting the spread of the “Corona” virus, in addition to tightening the noose on Jerusalemites and preventing them from praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The occupation forces deployed heavily at the entrances to Jerusalem, the Old City and the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and iron barriers and red bars were set up in the streets and around the gates of the town.
Dozens of Jerusalemites had performed Friday noon prayers outside the gates of the Old City of Jerusalem, especially at the Al-Amoud and Al-Sahira Gate, after they were prevented from reaching the Al-Aqsa Mosque, amid their encirclement by the occupation special units from all sides.
It is noteworthy that the so-called “Temple Groups” allegedly called for expanding the incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the “Throne” and “Joy of the Torah” holidays, mobilizing their members and employees on all social media pages and through direct contact and text messages.
Those groups distributed statements in the Old City and Al-Buraq Square, calling for more pressure on worshipers, marabout and Islamic endowments, with the aim of changing the reality in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
