A total of 132 settlers under the protection of Israeli police forced their way into Al-Aqsa complex through Al-Magharbeh and Hotta gates, General Director of Muslim Endowments and Al-Aqsa Affairs Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib said.

“A group of 10 settlers mounted on the roof of the Dome of the Rock Mosque and tried to perform Talmudic rituals but Palestinian guards managed to prevent them,” he added.

Others toured the holy compound passing by Al-Qibali and Al-Marwani mosques before leaving the complex through Al-Silsileh gate, he added.

Outside the compound, he said, a group of  settlers attacked three Muslim women and tried to pour hot tea on them.

The Israeli authorities also detained three Palestinians – two men and a woman – when the latter tried to enter the compound.

In recent months, groups of  settlers – often accompanied by Israeli security forces – have repeatedly forced their way into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
