Local sources reported that nearly 130 settlers broke into the yards of the Al Aqsa mosque on Monday morning while the Israeli police kept the Palestinians away. The settlers broke into the yards of the mosque through the Al Mughrabi Gate. Local sources said that five groups of settlers broke into the mosque yards accompanied with Israeli policemen.
The settlers toured in the yards and Muslim prayer quarters of the mosque while the local Palestinian guards of the mosque did not intervene as the Israeli Authorities usually attack them and prevent them from entering the mosque for one month; such orders are usually renewed without any legal background.
