Al-Quds, 19 Rabi’ul Awwal 1438/19 December 2016 (MINA) – Dozens of Jewish settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday under tight protection from the Israeli police and special forces.

The Quds Press news agency said that the Israeli police and special forces secured a full protection for 48 Jewish settlers who stormed into Al-Aqsa Mosque from Bab al-Magharbeh gate in the morning hours.

The news agency added that in the afternoon, 13 other Jewish settlers broke into the Mosque and strolled in its courtyards while receiving explanations and descriptions about the alleged “Temple”, the Palestinian Infoemarion Center (PIC) reported.

Meanwhile, members from the so-called “Nature and Parks Authority” stormed Bab Al-Rahma cemetery near Al-Aqsa Mosque and put a fence around one part of the cemetery, which means that the Israeli occupation will prevent the Jerusalemites from burying their dead in the fenced area.

Bab Al-Rahma cemetery has been an Islamic endowment land for hundreds of years, yet the Israeli Antiquities Authority said that part of it has been confiscated for settlement projects.(T/P008/R07)
