July 9, 2013

Last Monday, 152 settlers raided the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque through Dung Gate as they were guarded by the police. During the raiding process, the worshipers and Al-Aqsa students chanted “God is Great” and one of the settlers tried to perform his religious rituals inside Al-Aqsa, but was prevented by the police and was taken outside immediately. Other settlers started picking up olives from the trees planted in Al-Aqsa courtyards but the guards stopped them. Witnesses said that the police let 50 tourists wearing revealing clothes inside Al-Aqsa.
