Scores of Israeli settlers force their way into Al-Aqsa complex

Scores of Israeli settlers forced their way into the flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem on Sunday, according to a Palestinian agency.

In a statement, the Jordan-run Islamic Waqf Department, which oversees the holy sites in Jerusalem, said 144 settlers entered the complex under police protection, passing through from the Al-Maqaribe (Moroccans) Gate southwest of the mosque.

The group left the sacred site after wandering in the courtyard of Haram al-Sharif.

According to the peace treaty signed between Israel and Jordan on October 26, 1994, Masjid al-Aqsa is under the auspices of the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf Administration, which is affiliated with the Jordanian Ministry of Foundations, Islamic Affairs, and Holiness.
