More than 130 extremist Jewish settlers on Sunday forced entry into East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, where they attempted to perform Talmudic rituals, a Palestinian official has said.

“Around 135 extremist settlers stormed the mosque holy compound through Al-Mugharbeh gate under the protection of Israeli police officers,” Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, director-general of Al-Aqsa Affairs, told Anadolu.

Al-Khatib stated that, “The Jewish settlers tried to perform Talmudic rituals near the Al-Qibali mosque and the Dome of the Rock but they were prevented from doing so by Muslim worshipers and the mosque guards”.

Despite retaliation by Muslim worshipers, dozens of Jewish settlers managed to perform Talmudic rituals at Al-Qataneen and Lions’ gates, Al-Khatib stated.

Al-Khatib added that, “The [Jordan-run] Religious Endowments Authority condemns these provocative incursions by Jewish settlers”.
