Dozens of Jewish settlers on Sunday morning desecrated the Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards under tight police guard.
Senior Awqaf official Firas al-Debs said that the Israeli occupation police allowed dozens of settlers to enter the Mosque through al-Maghariba Gate and tour its courtyards.
Debs added that about 38 settlers defiled the Mosque and performed rituals near the Bab al-Rahma prayer area.
He also said that police officers rounded up Aqsa guard called Wisam al-Hasheem after he opened the Mosque’s Bab al-Rahma.
Over 20 Aqsa guards and 150 Palestinian citizens have been banished from the Aqsa Mosque since the recent events over the Bab al-Rahma area.
