Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- A large number of extremist Israeli settlers accompanied by police broke into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied city of Jerusalem in the early morning hours of Wednesday.
Under the occupation forces protection, over 522 Israeli settlers and police broke into the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the morning break-in session.
The settlers entered through the Damascus Gate- which Palestinians call Bab al-Amoud Gate- and they are now provoking the Palestinian worshipers by performing Talmudic prayers using loudspeakers in the courtyards of Al-Buraq Wall, known to Jews as the “Western Wall”, the western portion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli occupation authorities allow settler incursions to the mosque since 2003 under the forces protection, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.
Israeli forces always facilitate and protect the settlers breaking into the holy site while preventing Palestinian worshipers from enternint it, assaulting and detaining them.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.
