Extremist settlers storm Al Aqsa compound under heavy Israeli protection

Around 59 Israeli settlers early Sunday stormed 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 the Jewish settlers was carried through al-Magarbeh Gate and under heavy protection of Israeli soldiers and special police.

Extremist settlers provocatively toured the Al-Aqsa yards, creating a state of tension and anger among Muslim worshippers and inside the compound of the holy shrine, Al-Khatib explained .
