Days of Palestine – Jerusalem – Dozens of Jewish settlers escorted by police forces desecrated the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday morning.
According to local sources, at least 111 settlers in the morning entered the Mosque in groups through al-Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards under police protection.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing some settlers performing prayers or rituals during their tours at the Islamic holy site.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers and police forces in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
In another context, thousands of Muslim worshipers on Tuesday participated in celebratory activities commemorating the holy Mawlid (birthday) of Prophet Muhammad inside the Aqsa Mosque compound, amid Israeli movement restrictions.
Some of the Mawlid activities at the Aqsa Mosque included Islamic songs and poems in praise of the Prophet, prophetic stories, religious lessons, and the distribution of sweets among the worshipers.
