Dozens of Israeli settlers, policemen break into Aqsa Mosque Published: Thu, 13-September-2018

Scores 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.

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

Nine Israeli intelligence and police officers also showed up at the site as part of the break-in.

Dozens more are expected to show up at the Mosque in the afternoon break-in shift. 

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.
