Al-Quds, 2 Jumadil Awwal 1437/10 February 2016 (MINA) – Dozens of Israeli fanatics stormed on early Wednesday morning Muslims’ the holy al-Aqsa Mosque via the Maghareba Gate.

Israeli special units and rapid intervention troops escorted the 32 fanatics all the way through the break-in, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

The Muslim learners and worshipers at al-Aqsa kept chanting “Allah is the Greatest” in protest at the sacrilegious break-in. Muslim women who have been banned from entering al-Aqsa rallied outside the Mosque and recited Holy Quran.

A lady maintaining vigil at the Mosque said the occupation police kidnapped a Muslim youth from the plazas of al-Aqsa and dragged him to a detention center in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Meanwhile, Director of al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani, spoke out against the rising tide of Israeli terror and vandalism at the Mosque.

He said the increasing Israeli break-ins have fanned the flames of the simmering tension across Occupied Jerusalem, which stands in sharp contrast to Israeli calls to restore calm.

He added that the occupation police have cracked down on the peaceful Muslim worshipers at the entrances to the Mosque and sealed off its gates with metal barriers before they provocatively seized Muslims’ IDs.(T/P008/R03)
