The Islamic Waqf department in Jerusalem, which is in charge of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, said Glick stormed the cemetery, raised the Israeli flag on one of the graves, and blew the Shofar, a musical horn typically made of a ram’s horn used for Jewish religious purposes.
Jewish settler organizations recently announced their intentions to blow the Shofar inside the courtyards of Al-Aqsa mosque as part of their celebrations of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.
