Worshipers Confront Israel Deputy FM on Aqsa Visit

Palestinian worshipers and guards confronted the Israeli deputy foreign minister during a visit to the Al-Aqsa compound in Jerusalem’s Old City on Wednesday, a local foundation said.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage said Israeli deputy FM Zeev Elkin entered the compound through the Moroccan gate accompanied by a group of settlers and armed Israeli forces.

Minutes after arriving in the compound Elkin was surrounded by worshipers, students and mosque guards, pressuring him to leave.

Worshipers also chanted ‘Allah Akbar’, or ‘God is Great,’ at the senior Israeli official.

Some 30 minutes after the incident a group of 50 settlers entered the area, including Likud official Yehuda Glick.
