Israeli occupation police, on Saturday evening, stormed Al-Aqsa Mosqueâs Bab al-Rahma prayer area and confiscated some furniture items.
Local sources said that Israeli police officers desecrated the Bab al-Rahma prayer area and embarked on carrying away shoe cabinets and patterned wood panels.
The sources added, according to Days of Palestine, that the officers threatened Aqsa guards with arrest if they tried to prevent them from carrying out the confiscations.
The Israeli police had already removed furniture from the same prayer area recently, raising fears among the Jerusalemites about Israeli intents to reclose the place and turn it into a synagogue.
