140 Israeli settlers storm 3rd holiest site in Islam Published: Thu, 12-July-2018

Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed on Wednesday morning Al-Quds's (Jerusalem’s) al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—via the Maghareba Gate.

140 Israeli settlers, divided into groups and escorted by policemen, broke into al-Aqsa Mosque as part of the morning break-in shifts and carried out a round of sacrilegious tours.

At the same time, the peaceful Muslim worshipers have been subjected to tough crackdowns and restrictions by the Israeli police near the main entrances to the site. Several worshipers have been searched and dozens more have had their IDs seized while attempting to enter al-Aqsa to perform their daily prayers.

Scores of other Israeli settlers are expected to show up at the site in the afternoon break-in shift.
