Over 100 Israeli settlers on Wednesday morning broke into al-Aqsa Mosque under heavy police presence.

Media official at the Islamic Awqaf Department told Quds Press that 104 settlers entered the Mosque during the morning round of incursions via al-Maghareba Gate.

He added that the Israeli police special forces were deployed in large numbers in the Mosque and accompanied the settlers until they left the site through al-Silsila Gate.

The Israeli settlers break into al-Aqsa Mosque on a daily basis, except Friday and Saturday, during two rounds of incursions: in the morning and after the Muslim noon prayer.
