Eyewitnesses explained that the occupation forces, with different teams and intelligence personnel, stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque through its gates, closed them and prevented entry to the mosque, and spread in large numbers on the roof of the Dome of the Rock and in the squares, and assaulted those present with pushing and beatings, and expelled some from Al-Aqsa.
