September 30, 2014

Hundreds of settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque on Tuesday through Dung Gate. Al-Aqsa guards explained that 217 settlers broke into Al-Aqsa and carried out tours in its courtyards while the Muslim worshippers chanted “God is Great”. Witnesses explained that a group of settlers who are students of religious institutes also broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque and during their tour they laid on the ground to practice some of their religious rituals; note that the guards confronted them and forces the police to make them leave through Al-Silsileh Gate. One settler practiced his religious rituals near Al-Marwani chapel where he tore his clothes as part of special rituals; he was forced to leave by the police. The Jewish extremist groups called to intensify their break-ins to Al-Aqsa during the period of 28/9/2014 until 2/10/2014 which is named the “Days of Repentance” according to the Jewish beliefs. Those days come after the Jewish New Year and last until the Biblical Forgiveness Holiday. The Jews believe that those days are the days of divine sentence and they are days for forgiveness and accountability for the Jewish soul.
