Settlers – Members of Israel’s Intelligence Break into Al-Aqsa Mosque


Thursday 6th September, 30 members of Israel’s intelligence community headed by Likud member, Moshe Feiglin, and groups of settlers broke into al-Aqsa mosque since early hours of the morning.

Al Aqsa Institute said in a press release that Moshe Feiglin, escorted by settlers broke into the mosque to perform Talmudic rituals, under the protection of Israeli forces.

Eyewitnesses said that Feiglin and settlers raided al-Aqsa mosque at 8 AM from al-Magharbeh gate and headed to the mosque where they performed their religious rituals and walked in the mosque’s yards.

Al-Aqsa Institute described “Israeli continuous incursions and the profanation of the mosque by leaders of Israeli parties, members of Knesset and settlers,  with very dangerous procedures, in which occupation attempts to implicit Jewish presence daily in al-Aqsa mosque, in a step to impose the decision issued earlier to divide al-Aqsa mosque between Palestinians and Jews.”

Al-Aqsa Institute called on Palestinians, especially Jerusalemites to increase their presence in al-Aqsa mosque to help protecting it from such incursions and profanations.

Earlier in July, the Jerusalem Municipality issued a decision to convert Al Aqsa’s yards into public gardens. Also, for the first time in Ramadan, Jerusalem police forces allowed Jewish settlers to storm into the mosque’s yards, threatening Muslim worshippers.

Palestinian President reiterated in his statement that there will be no peace, no security and no stability  unless the occupation, settlers and settlements are gone from Jerusalem. He stressed that the city is at the core of Palestinian identity and remain the eternal capital of the Palestinian state.
