14 Israeli settlers, led by Rabbi Yehuda Glick, stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday morning, and toured its courtyards.
Media coordinator for the al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage, Mahmoud Abu Atta, told Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency that the tour started from Magharba gate, continuing until they reached Marwani Prayer Hall.
‘The settlers gathered at this area and listened to Talmudic explanation regarding the so-called Solomon’s Temple, from extremist rabbi Yehuda Glick’, he added.
Abu Atta said that the settlers performed Jewish ritual prayers in an attempt to provoke Palestinian worshipersâ feelings.
According to Ein Al-Hilwa Information Center, the number of the Israeli extremists who carried out break-ins into Al-Aqsa Mosque, throughout 2013, is at 9,050.
