Dozens of extremist Jewish settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday under heavy police protection.
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Dozens of extremist Jewish settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday under heavy police protection.
Local sources affirmed that the settlers performed Talmudic rituals in the eastern area of Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound.
Last week, Israel's Knesset had issued a recommendation to the education ministry to include teachings about the so-called Jewish history during field trips to the holy Islamic site in Occupied al-Quds' Old City in school curricula.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by 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.
