Settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque

Groups of Israeli extremist settlers early Tuesday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ Haram Al Sharif compound 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 out under heavy protection of Israeli special forces and police.

Extremist settlers provocatively toured the Al-Aqsa yards, and were briefed on the alleged “Temple Mount” by rabbis accompanying them, while Muslim worshipers and the mosque’s guards peacefully confronted them chanting Allahu Akbar (God is great), Al-Khatib added.
