Two US congressmen escorted by Israeli settlers and policemen stormed Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday morning.
In a video uploaded online, Scott Tipton of Colorado and David McKinley of West Virginia defiled al-Aqsa Mosque as part of the morning break-in shift routinely carried out by Israeli settler hordes.
A PIC news correspondent said olive branches were stolen from al-Aqsa during the break-in.
The assault makes part of Israeli attempts to alter the status quo at al-Aqsa—the third holiest site in Islam.
The US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last month has given Israel green light to step up Judaization schemes in the holy city.
