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.
