Israeli occupation forces raided, on Monday evening, a number of facilities in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, searching for defenders, Jerusalemite sources reported.
The sources reported that the soldiers¬†detained one worshipper while he was on his way out of the mosque, after performing Ishaa evening prayers.
A state of tension has evolved at the mosque over recent days,¬†Al Ray reports, as extremist¬†organizations call on Israelis to celebrate their Passover inside the Islamic holy site.
Israeli occupation authorities continue to tighten its security measures on the mosque¬†gates and have deployed military patrols in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem and around the historic wall.
