Restrictions on the entrance of Muslims to Al-Aqsa
Groups of settlers broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday while the Israeli authorities imposed restrictions on the entrance of Muslims to Al-Aqsa. Special Forces personnel raided the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and were stationed near Dung Gate. The forces fired sound grenades and rubber bullets towards a group of young men who were present in the courtyards. The Islamic Awqaf Department explained that the occupation authorities prevented men under the age of 30 and women of all ages from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque and closed most the gates except for Hutta, Al-Majles and Al-Silsileh. The occupation forces assaulted the Marabouts near Al-Silsileh gate and pushed them. The Marabouts help pictures of the baby Martyr Ali Dawabsheh who was burned alive after settlers attacked his family’s house in the village of Duma in Nablus; note that his parents and brother also suffered critical burns. The alleged Temple groups called to carry out group break-ins to Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday entitled “Return to the Temple Mount”. The Islamic Awqaf Department explained that 30 settlers broke into Al-Aqsa on Sunday through Dung Gate.
