Dozens of settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday- third day of the Jewish Passover holiday.

Firas Dibs, head of public relation and media at the Islamic Awqaf department, said that 385 settlers broke into Al-Aqsa through Dung Gate; 252 in the morning and 133 in the afternoon break-in session.

Also, thousands of settlers practiced their religious rituals at Al-Buraq square on the third day of Passover.

The occupation forces closed several streets in Jerusalem especially the ones leading to Al-Buraq Square. Forces were deployed in the streets and at the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the roads leading to it. Settlers also practiced their religious rituals outside the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
