Jerusalem (QNN)- Dozens of Israeli settlers on Monday stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied East Jerusalem, according to Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, reported Anadolu Agency.
The Jerusalem Islamic Waqf said that 47 Israeli settlers, under the Israeli occupation forces’ protection, entered the mosque this morning through Al-Mugharbah gate.
The agency expected more settlers to come to the mosque later in the day.
On Sunday, 106 Israeli settlers broke into the holy site under the occupation police protection.
Israeli occupation authorities allow settler incursions to the mosque since 2003, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.
