Scores of Jewish extremist settlers early Sunday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ al-Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied East Jerusalem

A statement by the General Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said that today’s raid was conducted through al-Magharebah Gate under the heavy protection of Israeli police

“The settlers toured the mosque’s yards, listened to explanations about the purported “Temple Mount”, and provocatively performed Talmudic rituals in the eastern part of the compound, while Muslim worshipers peacefully confronted,” it added
