Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa compound

Jerusalem, Oct. 2 (Petra) – Groups of Jewish settlers on Thursday stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem, barging in via the Al-Magharebah Gate.

Palestinian sources said that settlers forced their way into the courtyards of the Mosque in successive groups and toured the place under the protection of Israeli policemen.

"The settlers provoked the Muslim worshippers in the holy Mosque leading to clashes between them," the sources added, noting that the Mosque’s guards confronted the settlers and prevented them from practicing any Talmudic rituals.
