106 Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Dozens Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Jerusalem today.

Under the occupation forces protection, 106 Israeli settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, 72 settlers during the morning break-in sessions and 34 during the afternoon break-in sessions.

The settlers entered through the Al-Mughrabi Gate and were provoking the Palestinian worshipers in the mosque courtyards by performing Talmudic prayers before they left it through the Al-Silsila Gate.

Local sources said the settlers also put up a sign at the Al-Mughrabi Gate that says “Hallel Gate”, in a reference to Hallel Ariel, a female Israeli settler killed in 2006 in the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba in Hebron in the occupied West Bank, in an attempt to judaize the holy site.

Israeli forces always attack and assault Palestinian worhipers at the courtyards of the Mosque with sound grenades, rubber bullets and pepper gas.

The forces also station at the gates of the mosque and deatin dozens of Palestinian young men and boys, after assaulting them.

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.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.
