Under the occupation forces protection, Israeli settlers, led by Ben-Gvir, stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the morning break-in session.
Ben-Gvir along with the settlers entered through the Al-Mughrabi Gate and were provoking the Palestinian worshipers in the mosque courtyards by performing Talmudic prayers.
The Israeli forces prevented Palestinians from entering the mosque and were chasing Palestinians in the Mosque courtyards, keeping them away from the settlers.
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 detain 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.
