Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque compound

Groups of Israeli extremist settlers early Sunday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ Haram Al Sharif compound in occupied 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 134 settlers and 10 Israeli policemen stormed the holy mosque via Al-Magharebah Gate under heavy protection by Israeli police.

Israeli settlers performed provocative Talmudic rituals amid a state of anger, al-Khatib explained.
