Dozens of settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards

PNN/ Jerusalem/

Dozens of settlers stormed on Thursday the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the protection of the occupation forces, and performed Talmudic rituals there.

The Islamic Endowments Department reported that 29 settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque and wandered around its courtyards, especially in the eastern region of the mosque, under the protection of the heavily armed special occupation forces.

The Jerusalem Endowments indicated that the incursions started from the Mughrabi Gate, one of the doors of the mosque, to the Bab al-Rahma chapel, and to the Bab al-Silsila Gate, during which Talmudic rituals were performed.

The Jerusalem Endowments indicated that settlers storm the Al-Aqsa courtyards daily from Sunday to Thursday, during the morning rounds and last for three and a half hours, and in the second “evening” rounds, which last for one hour.

The settler incursions came as the occupation forces hindered worshipers from reaching Al-Aqsa Mosque who live outside the Old City, and the identities of some of its visitors are kept at the gates.
