Dozens of Israeli settlers defile al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards

November 16, 2021

Occupied Jerusalem - Dozens of settlers stormed, this morning, the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and its chapels, and performed provocative Talmudic rituals under the protection of the occupation forces.

As part of the continuous provocative behavior, the sources explained that the settlers toured the courtyards of Al-Aqsa, and performed public Talmudic rituals inside them.

They storm the courtyards of Al-Aqsa during the morning and afternoon periods (after the Dhuhr prayer) through the Bab al Magharibah (The Moroccan Gate) in the Western Wall of Al-Aqsa, under the protection of the occupation forces, as part of periodic tours they carry out aimed at changing the reality in the Holy City and the Al-Aqsa Holy Mosque.

During the period of incursions, the occupation forces evacuate the eastern area and drive the worshipers and guardians of the Mosque away, to facilitate the settlers’ storming.

The occupation targets Jerusalemites and the Al-Murabitin (Al-Aqsa Guardians) in particular, by arresting, expelling, and imposing fines, intending to keep the Jerusalemites away from Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the interest of Judaizing it.

Since the occupation of Jerusalem in 1967, the occupation forces have been controlling the keys of the Bab al-Maghariba (Moroccan Gate), and through it, settlers and the occupation forces carry out daily incursions.
