State Of Tension Spreads In Al-Aqsa Following Settlers’ Break-In

Al-Quds, 4 Muharram 1437/5 October 2016 (MINA) – New settlers group desecrated Wednesday morning Al-Aqsa Mosque via the Israeli-controlled Al-Magharibeh gate under heavy Israeli police protection.

The settlers tried to perform Talmudic rituals which led to a state of tension among Palestinian worshipers, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.

Meanwhile, several pro-Aqsa female activists, whose entry to the Aqsa Mosque is banned by the police, rallied outside the Islamic holy shrine and embarked on reading the holy Qur’an.

Tension remained high in and around Al-Aqsa Mosque since early October 2015 after Israeli police repeatedly stormed the site and restricted Palestinians’ access into it, while allowing large numbers of settlers to access the holy site under heavy protection.(T/P008/R07)
