“I believe that the time has come for the courts to rule that Jews are allowed to pray on the Temple Mount [Al-Aqsa Mosque], just as Muslims are permitted to pray at the site,” Ben Gvir said. “There can be no wrongful discrimination at the most important site for the people of Israel.”

Israeli settlers regularly storm the Al-Aqsa compound in coordination with Israeli forces, performing rituals and pledging to destroy the mosque, whilst Muslim worshippers are left outside.

Extreme settler groups have repeatedly called for increasing raids of the holy site, especially on significant Jewish holidays.
