Dozens of settlers stormed the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday, and carried out provocative tours under the protection of the special forces.
Jerusalem sources reported that the occupation forces closed the Moghrabi Gate for the morning period, after 120 settlers stormed the courtyards of the Mosque, including 65 tourists and students of extremist religious institutes.
The sources pointed out that settlers performed provocative religious and Talmudic rituals, during their tours that focused in the eastern region of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and near the Bab Al-Rahma chapel.
The settler incursions are part of periodic tours by settler flocks aiming to change the reality in the Holy City and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
During the evening incursions, the Israeli occupation forces extended the settlers an additional half hour, to between 12:30 and 2:00 instead of 1:30.
