TEHRAN (IQNA) – Zionist settlers stormed the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds on Tuesday morning.

 

Eyewitnesses said that the incursions were carried out from the Mughrabi Gate, under the strict protection of the Israeli occupation police, Roya News reported.

Dozens of settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards, and received explanations about the "alleged temple," before leaving it through the chain door.

Israeli occupation authorities continue their violence and escalation policies, including permitting extremist settlers to raid Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli authorities have allowed settler incursions to the compound 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 world’s third-holiest site for Muslims. Jews call the area the “Temple Mount,” claiming it was the site of two Jewish temples in ancient times.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem Al-Quds, where Al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It annexed the entire city in 1980 in a move never recognized by the international community.
