Hordes of Israeli settlers defile al-Aqsa Mosque Published: Thu, 11-October-2018

Dozens of Israeli settlers on Wednesday morning forced their way into al-Aqsa Mosque while escorted by a large police force.

Al-Quds's (Jerusalem's) Islamic Awqaf Department said that the Israeli police allowed over 100 settlers to perform Talmudic rituals in the Mosque and tour its courtyards for four hours.

More settlers are expected to visit the Mosque for a one-hour tour following noon prayer, it added.

Israeli settlers on almost a daily basis carry out mass break-ins into al-Aqsa Mosque via al-Maghareba Gate, which has been under Israel's control since 1967.
