Extremist settlers storm Al-Aqsa under Israeli police escort

Jerusalem, Mar. 15 (Petra) — Dozens of Jewish extremist settlers on Wednesday broke into the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ al-Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied East Jerusalem, according to an official Palestinian source.

A statement by the General Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said that the settlers carried out today’s raids through al-Magharebah Gate under the heavy protection of Israeli police, who restricted Muslim worshippers’ access to the mosque and seized their identification cards.

“The settlers toured the mosque’s yards and provocatively performed Talmudic rituals amid a state of anger inside the compound,” it added.
