Religious rituals and raiding the Israeli flag in Al-Aqsa
October 15, 2013

Several extremists raised the Israeli flag in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and practiced their own religious rituals. Witnesses said that several extremists broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque through Dung Gate.  They were in groups and went on their regular tour in Al-Aqsa courtyards; they were protected by the police and Special Forces. A group of 10 extremists arrived at Bab Al-Rahma and performed a prayer (bowing, dancing and singing) and the forces were also protecting them. Another group of 14 extremists raised the Israeli flag upon arrival at King Faisal Gate.
