Israeli occupation forces broke into the Bab Al-Rahma Prayer Hall, located within the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem, on Thursday night, causing extensive damage, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli occupation forces conducted searches in the prayer hall and vandalized parts of its contents while confiscating other items.

Israeli occupation forces broke into the Bab Al-Rahma Prayer Hall, causing extensive damage.

For years, Israeli occupation authorities have been targeting the Bab Al-Rahma Prayer Hall in an attempt to take control of it and convert it into a Jewish synagogue.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque is a place of deep religious significance for Muslims worldwide and is situated in the heart of Jerusalem, which has been illegally occupied by Israel since 1967.

The Bab al-Rahma Prayer Hall, like the rest of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, is administered by the Islamic Waqf, which is responsible for the management and maintenance of Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem.
