Dozens of settlers renew their storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque


On Wednesday, dozens of Israeli settlers renewed their storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque, guarded by the Israeli police.


The Department of Islamic Endowments in Jerusalem said in a brief statement, “174 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque this morning, guarded by the Israeli police.”

It is expected that more settlers will storm the mosque in the period after the noon prayer.

The incursions take place in two periods, in the morning and afternoon prayers, and through the Mughrabi Gate in the western wall of the mosque, with facilities and escort from the Israeli police.

The Israeli police have allowed settlers to storm the mosque since 2003, despite the rejection of the Islamic Endowment Department responsible for managing it.
