Israeli settlers storm al-Aqsa mosque amid tensions in West Bank

Amid international efforts to de-escalate tensions in the occupied Palestinian territories, Israeli settlers have once again raided the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of East Jerusalem al-Quds under the protection of Israeli forces.

The Palestinian information center, citing sources, reported that extremist settlers entered the compound through the Moroccan Gate in the early hours of Sunday.

The Israeli troops also attacked the worshipers who came to perform the dawn prayer at the gates of the al-Aqsa and prevented them from entering the mosque.

Some of the mosque’s guards were detained and and taken to undisclosed location.

The settlers, who were being escorted by heavily-armed Israeli forces, provocatively toured the holy site.

The Israeli settlers performed Jewish religious rituals in the compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza and houses both the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa mosques.
