Israeli Settlers Invade the Al-Aqsa Compound Under Police Protection

Illegal Israeli colonizers invaded, on Sunday, the Islamic Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, amid restrictions against the Palestinian Muslims wishing to enter the holy site, according to Quds Press.

Sources stated that 104 illegal settlers, freely walked the courtyards under the full protection of occupation police, after entering through the Mughrabi Gate (Morocco Gate).

Groups of settlers, including students of religious institutes and Israeli government officials stormed the Al-Aqsa compound, while receiving accounts of the alleged ‘temple’.

This incursion comes at a time when the occupation authorities have restricted entry of Palestinian muslims while inspecting their identification, while allowing illegal colonizers to roam freely under police protection.

On Sunday morning, occupation forced shot and killed a Palestinian young man, identified as, Karim Jamal al-Qawasmi, 19, a former political prisoner, after he allegedly carried out a stabbing attempt.

Soldiers closed the Bab Hutta gate area, north of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to all other gates leading to the compound, restricting access to Palestinians but not Israeli settlers, in addition to searching the alleys around the compound.
