Under the occupation forces protection, 215 Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, 166 during the morning break-in session and 49 during the afternoon break-in session.
The settlers entered through the Al-Mughrabi Gate and till now, they are provoking the Palestinian worshipers in the mosque courtyards by performing Talmudic prayers.
Among the settlers who stormed the mosque were a group called “Women for the Temple Mount” who also performed provocative tours.
Israeli forces always attack and assault Palestinian worhipers at the courtyards of the Mosque with sound grenades, rubber bullets and pepper gas.
The forces also station at the gates of the mosque and detain dozens of Palestinian young men and boys, after assaulting them.
Israeli occupation authorities allow settler incursions to the mosque since 2003, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.
