Dozens of Israeli settlers, escorted by Israeli forces, stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem on Monday, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

According to the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, at least 85 settlers forced their way into the mosque’s compound through Bab al-Magharbeh Gate – one of the gates leading to the mosque – and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards under the protection of Israeli police.

Tensions at the Al-Aqsa compound have been rising for some time, as increasing settler raids have been reported.

Jewish settlers raid Al-Aqsa Mosque on a daily basis and perform Talmudic rituals inside its yards, while the Israeli army limits access to Muslim worshippers during this time.

  1. Your ‘news coverage’ is focused on Israel, is there nothing happening in Palestine to cover? No construction? Trade? Any good news at all??

    Why have a ‘newspaper’ if you only cover another country?

    On point, you say these ‘settlers’ and your guides “stormed’ the area. The video and pictures your provided don’t show anyone storming anything! Are you sure these are the pictures? They were walking (and rather slowly, too).

    How do you they were ‘settlers’? Did you ask them? They might be tourists? They might be born in Israel. They might be there for school. Usually a reporter talks to the people of whom he plans on reporting. It’s odd you didn’t quote them, name them…
