Scores of Israeli settlers defile al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards

December 14, 2021

Occupied Jerusalem – Israeli occupying settlers stormed, this morning, the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Bab al-Magharibah, under the protection of the occupation forces.

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

The occupied city of Jerusalem and its gates have been witnessing strict “security” measures represented in the frisk search of Palestinian citizens and worshipers in Al-Aqsa and attacks on them.

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, inventing them as a pretext for settlement expansion.

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.
