December 9, 2015

Settlers broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque on Wednesday morning in the presence of occupation Special Forces. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that 60 settlers broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque in the form of consecutive groups through Dung Gate and carried out a tour into Al-Aqsa courtyards. Witnesses said that a group of 15 settlers attempted to provoke Muslim worshippers present in Al-Aqsa courtyards by taking pictures of them using their personal cameras. Before reaching Al-Silsileh Gate and exiting, some settlers laid on the ground and started dancing and singing (part of their religious rituals). Witnesses added that the police made a group of settlers exit Al-Aqsa courtyards amid chants of “God is Great” by Muslim worshippers while other settlers continued their religious rituals (dancing and singing) outside Al-Silsileh Gate.
