Jewish hardliners storm al-Aqsa compound under Israeli police escort

Dozens of ultraorthodox Jewish settlers on Monday raided the al-Aqsa Mosque / Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied Jerusalem in almost daily incursions.

The Department of Islamic Waqf and al-Aqsa Mosque Affairs said in a statement that the hardliners made their way into the compound from the al-Magharebah Gate under heavy police escort, carrying out provocations that drew protests from worshippers.

Jewish hardliners carry out almost daily violations of the sanctuary in an attempt to impose temporal and spatial division of one of Islam’s holiest shrines.
