Dozens of extremist settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque

Jerusalem, Mar. 19 (Petra) — Scores of Jewish extremist settlers early Sunday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ al-Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied East Jerusalem, an official Palestinian source said.

A statement by the General Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said that the settlers carried out today’s raids through al-Magharebah Gate in successive groups, under the heavy protection of Israeli police.

“The settlers toured the mosque’s yards and provocatively performed Talmudic rituals, while Muslim worshipers peacefully confronted,” it added.
