Jerusalem24 – Today, Tuesday, hundreds of settlers stormed the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Umayyad palaces and Al-Buraq Square, on the “Jewish Passover” holiday, amid widespread and closures of streets and roads in the city of Jerusalem.
The Islamic Endowments Department stated that 313 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The occupation forces were deployed since the morning hours at the gates of Al Aqsa, and at the time of the “morning period” incursions, the special occupation forces dispersed in Al-Aqsa, while other teams escorted the settlers as they walked to Al-Aqsa.
Since the morning hours, settlers have held celebrations in the Umayyad palaces, forming circles of dancing and singing, and performing dozens of prayers in Al-Buraq Square.
The occupation police closed several streets adjacent to the Old City wall, especially in the Lions and Morocco gates area, and prevented Jerusalemites from crossing with their vehicles, and forced them to take detour roads to reach their homes adjacent to these streets.
On the other hand, the occupation authorities deported the journalist Mona Al-Qawasmi and the freed prisoner Sidqi Al-Maqt from the Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday evening.
The police arrested Al-Qawasmi and al-Muqt from Al-Aqsa Square, and transferred them for investigation to Al-Qashla Police Station for several hours.
