Settlers led by Glick Storm Al-Aqsa Mosque Courtyards

August 23, 2021

Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed, under heavy protection of the occupation forces, the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, led by extremist Rabbi Yehuda Glick.

Glick stormed the Al-Aqsa along with dozens of settlers from the Mughrabi Gate, and carried out provocative tours inside its courtyards, local sources reported.

Settlers also stormed the eastern area of the ​​Al-Aqsa Mosque and performed Talmudic and provocative rituals.

These incursions also take place during the morning and evening shifts (after the Dhuhr prayer) through the Mughrabi 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 let go the worshipers and guardians of ​​the mosque, to facilitate the settlers’ storming.

The occupation targets Jerusalemites through detention, deportations, and fines, intending to keep them away from the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and leaving it as a pretext for settlement ambitions.

The periodic report issued by the Hamas media office in the West Bank reported 3,886 violations committed by the occupation during July.

The occupation forces and the settlers committed 22 attacks on places of worship and holy sites. While the occupation displaced 3 citizens from the places of residence and the Al-Aqsa Holy Mosque. Meanwhile, they protect (3,387) settlers who storm the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
