Tension has been running high at holy al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday after Muslim guards uncovered a stone-theft attempt by an Israeli archaeologist.
A PIC news correspondent said Israeli cops cordoned off the plazas of al-Aqsa Mosque and kidnapped two Muslim guards—Salman Abu Mayala and Luay Abu al-Saad. Both detainees were dragged to an Israeli detention center in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem.
Director of al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani, was aggressively shoved by the Israeli forces as he attempted to prevent the occupation cops from arresting al-Aqsa staff members.
Meanwhile, the peaceful Muslim worshipers kept chanting “Allah is the Greatest” in protest at the assault.
Hordes of Israeli settlers, escorted by police troops, stormed al-Aqsa Mosque via al-Maghareba Gate at the early morning hours and performed sacrilegious rituals, in the second such move carried out over the past couple of days by the so-called Haredim fanatics dressed all in black.
