Large groups of Zionist settlers desecrate Al-Aqsa Mosque compound

OCCUPIED PALESTINE, May 25 (YPA) – Large groups of Zionist settlers escorted by occupation police broke into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Thursday morning, marking the so called “Feast of Weeks”.

According to the Islamic Endowment Department in Jerusalem, dozens of settlers stormed Al-Aqsa through al-Magharebah Gate under the heavy protection of the occupation police.

They carried out provocative tours and performed Talmudic rituals in its courtyards.

The occupation forces restricted the entry of Palestinian worshippers to Al-Aqsa, checked their IDs and detained some of them at its external gates.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is exposed to settlers’ incursions on two shifts, morning and evening, with the exception of Friday and Saturday, in an attempt to impose temporal and spatial division.
