Extremist settlers storm Al- Aqsa compound

Groups of Israeli extremist settlers early Wednesday stormed 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 the Jewish settlers was carried from Al- Magharebah Gate under heavy protection of Israeli special forces and police.

Al-Khatib noted that the settlers provocatively toured the mosque and performed their Talmudic rituals.
