Israeli extremist settlers and archaeologists, backed by special troops, stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Tuesday.

 Jerusalemite sources said, according to Al Ray, that 70 Jewish Israeli settlers and 48 archaeologists broke into Al-Aqsa’s courtyards via the Maghariba gate, and tried to perform Talmudic rituals.

 The sources said that guards and worshipers faced off the settlers with chanting.

 It is worth mentioning that Al-Aqsa Mosque is exposed to the such raids on a near daily basis, upon which settlers perform Talmudic rituals and desecrate the sanctity of the mosque.

In related news, extremist settlers also stormed Joseph’s Tomb, in Nablus, under heavy guard of Israeli police.

 Local sources said that hundreds of Israeli settlers stormed the tomb at dawn, and performed Talmudic rituals, leading to clashes between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers.

No injuries were reported.
