OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– About 120 Jewish settlers led by rabbis on Sunday morning desecrated in groups the Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards under tight police protection. One of those settlers tried to perform Talmudic rituals during his tour of the Islamic holy place, but the mosque guards prevented him. At the invitation of Palestinian religious and national figures in Occupied Jerusalem, dozens of citizens flocked in the early morning to the Mosque to foil attempts by temple mount groups to organize revelries on its courtyards on the 49th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of east Jerusalem. Meanwhile, tensions have become high today in the Old City of Jerusalem as a result of the march of flags which Jewish settlers organized today to celebrate the anniversary. In a separate incident, local young men from the Old City of Jerusalem were able at dawn to save a Palestinian commercial store from being burned by Jewish settlers.
