71 Israeli settlers break into Al-Quds's (Jerusalem’s) Aqsa Mosque Published: Fri, 12-October-2018

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

Public relations chief at the Islamic Awqaf Department Firas al-Dabes said 71 Israeli settlers, escorted by policemen, and divided into groups showed up at the site and carried out sacrilegious tours.

Israeli police cordoned the plazas of al-Aqsa Mosque at the crack of dawn to secure the break-in.

Israeli police reportedly cracked down on Muslim worshipers at the main entrances to the site.

On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation police banned three Muslim guards from entering al-Aqsa Mosque for two weeks.
