Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Dozens Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Jerusalem earlier today.
Under the occupation forces protection, 175 Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the morning break-in session.
The settlers entered through the Al-Mughrabi Gate, and they were provoking the Palestinian worshipers in the mosque courtyards by performing Talmudic prayers.
Reports said that Israeli settler groups are preparing for a raid to mark the so-called ‘Tisha B’Av’, a fast day which marks ‘the destruction of the Temple’, as zionists believe,in the old city of Jerusalem at 7:00 PM, Jerusalem time, on Sunday.
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.
