Settlers storm Al-Aqsa mosque courtyards in groups

September 22, 2021

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, Sept 22 - This morning, Wednesday, large numbers of settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, on the second day of the so-called Jewish “Sukkot,” Palestinian sources said.

They break into the Al-Aqsa through Bab al Magharibah (The Moroccan Gate) amid a heavy occupation forces’ deployment in the squares and at the gates of the Masjid.

During the incursion, the settlers received explanations about the alleged "Temple", and performed Talmudic rituals in the yards of Al-Aqsa, especially in the eastern side of it, the sources added.

The settlers intensified their incursions, under the pretext of Jewish holidays, while Jerusalemites and Palestinians from the occupied interior were restricted from visiting Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The occupation forces allow Jewish settlers to storm Al-Aqsa in the Morning and evening periods for hours.

Al-Aqsa Mosque has been subjected to continuous settlers and occupation forces’ incursions attempting to be visited and maintained by Muslims.

Since the occupation of Jerusalem in 1967, the occupation forces have been controlling the keys of the Bab al Magharibah through which settlers and occupation forces carry out daily incursions.
