Extremist settlers storm Al Aqsa compound

Groups of Israeli extremist settlers early Tuesday 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-Magharebah Gate and under heavy protection of Israeli special forces and police.

The extremist settlers provocatively toured the Al-Aqsa yards, Al-Khatib added.
