plfpales2200009JERUSALEM - (PNIC) - At least 65 Israeli settlers Wednesday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem.
According to locals, the Israeli settlers were escorted by Israeli intelligence officers, entered the compound via the Moroccan Gate and toured the area.
The third holiest site in Islam, Al-Aqsa is also venerated as Judaism’s most holy place, as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.
While Jewish visitation is permitted to the compound, non-Muslim worship is prohibited according to an agreement signed between Israel and the Jordanian government after Israel’s illegal occupation of East Jerusalem in 1967.
Despite this agreement, Israeli authorities regularly allow Jewish visitors to enter the site often under armed guard. Such visits are typically made by right-wingers attempting to unsettle the status quo at the site, and coincide with restrictions on Palestinian access, including bans on entrance and detentions.
