Israeli occupation forces stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque Courtyards on Friday via The Moroccan Gate.
The Jews settlers daily storm the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to impose the temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the Holy city of Jerusalem.
For Muslims, Al-Aqsa represents the world’s third holiest site, while Jews refer to the area as the “Temple Mount”, claiming it was the site of two Jewish temples in ancient times.
In 2003, the Israeli occupation government unilaterally decided — despite the objections of the Islamic Endowments Department — to allow non-Muslim visitors into the complex.
Since then, under increasingly right-wing Israeli governments, radical extremist Jewish settlers have been allowed into the site in ever greater numbers — usually protected by Israeli occupation forces — while Palestinian access to the site has become increasingly restricted.
The number of Israeli settlers storming the holy site has risen since US president Donald Trump’s declaration of occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
