Dozens of extremist settlers storm Al-Aqsa yards

Dozens of extremist Jewish settlers early Thursday stormed the compounds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ Haram Al Sharif in the occupied holy city of Jerusalem, a Palestinian source confirmed.

The General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told Petra’s reporter in Ramallah that today’s raid by dozens of Jewish settlers was carried through al-Magharebah Gate and under heavy protection of Israeli special forces and police.

Extremist settlers toured the Al-Aqsa yards, and performed their provocative Talmudic rituals causing a state of tension and anger inside the holy shrine, Al-Khatib added.
