Since last Friday, Al-Aqsa has witnessed daily incursions and confrontations, coinciding with the “Easter Feast” to secure the settlers’ incursions into the mosque, as they stormed it at dawn and last Friday morning, and dozens were injured on that day, and hundreds were arrested.Clashes and incursions resumed at dawn on Sunday, and over the past days, injuries and arrests were recorded from Al-Aqsa and its gates.

From Sunday until Thursday, the occupation forces imposed restrictions on the movement of worshipers inside Al-Aqsa during the period of the incursions, by spreading all over the Dome of the Rock to prevent people from walking along the “settler’s path”. On the other hand, the women held a sit-in and chanted God is Great in front of the settler groups, and were beaten and threatened.

As for the al-Qibli prayer hall, it was also besieged, and the youths were sprayed with pepper gas, and shot with rubber bullets, while they responded by firing fireworks, stones and knocking on the doors.

Meanwhile, 3,738 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa during the Passover holiday.
