Israeli settlers, on Wednesday, broke into al-Aqsa Mosque from the Dung Gate, guarded by intensified private units of the Israeli police force.Police stood at the gates of the mosque, blocking Muslim women of all ages from entering for worship services, while detaining the ID cards of the men.

The routine is ongoing, PNN reports, with Israeli settlers breaking into the mosque in small groups but successive acts, during which they tour the yards accompanied by ‘guards’ who narrate mythical stories about the proclaimed Temple Mount, which sits above the mosque.
