Protected by heavily armed Israeli occupation police, 1,371 Jewish settlers accompanied by Knesset members stormed Al Aqsa Mosque and clashed with Palestinian worshipers inside the third Islamic holy site.

Media sources and eyewitnesses reported that the Jewish settlers stormed Al Aqsa Mosque early on Sunday morning to celebrate their fast day which commemorates their alleged day of temple destruction thousands of years ago.

The Israeli police violently attacked the Palestinian worshipers, detained many of them, and lynched others in order to clear the way for the settlers.

Videos went viral on the internet showing the violent aggression of the Israeli police against the Palestinian worshipers who were determined not to leave Al Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli MK Itamar Ben-Gvir and former MK and extremist rabbi, Yehudah Glick, accompanied the groups of settlers who raided Al Aqsa Mosque.

Witnesses said that the Israeli occupation force closed the gates of Al Qibli Mosque, the main prayer hall inside Al Aqsa Mosque, with chains in order to block the Muslim worshipers inside and afford safe and calm conditions for the extremist settlers.

While the Jewish settlers were inside Al Aqsa Mosque, Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett held an assessment of the security situation with Internal Security Minister Omer Barlev and police chief Kobi Shabtai, with the premier’s office.

The settler aggression on Al Aqsa Mosque ended without casualties among the Palestinians, except the detention of several of them amid calls by the settlers for more raids on the Muslim holy site.

  1. It’s not even possible for Palestinians to peacefully pray inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque without Zionist terror groups invading and savagely attacking them. Yeah, these Zionists are indeed the “chosen people” when it comes to committing terrorism and savagery. Once and for all, the world must unite together to crush this evil filth of Zionism, and flush it down the toilet where it belongs. Israel and Zionism never have the right to exist!
