Extremist Israeli settlers, in the early morning hours of Monday, broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound via the Moroccan Gate, heavily protected by Israeli forces, Palestinian Media Agency (Alray) reported.

Sources said the settlers carried out provocative tours in the courtyards of the mosque and received explanations on the alleged “Temple Mount”.

Palestinian worshipers, students, and guards of the Al-Aqsa mosque, objected to the invasion, made attempts to impede the settler invasion, and chanted Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest).

It is noteworthy that the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, is exposed to, on a regular basis, the performance of Talmudic rituals by Israeli settlers, which desecrates its sanctity.
