AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Hordes of Jewish settlers escorted by police forces desecrated the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Monday morning.
According to local sources, dozens of settlers entered the Mosque through its Maghariba Gate in groups and toured its courtyards under tight police guard.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation police restricted the entry of Muslim worshipers to the Aqsa Mosque, searched them and prevented many of them from entering it.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by extremist Jewish settlers and police forces in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Israeli police close al-Maghariba Gate, which is used by Jews to enter the Mosque, at 10:30 am after the settlers complete their morning tours at the holy site. Later in the afternoon, the same gate is reopened for evening tours by settlers.
During the presence of settlers inside the Mosque compound, entry restrictions are imposed on Muslim worshipers at the entrances leading to the Mosque and their IDs could be seized until they leave the holy place.
