Dozens of Israeli settlers on Tuesday morning broke into al-Aqsa Mosque under police guard, while restrictions were tightened on the Palestinian worshipers entering the site.
The Israeli police scrutinized the Palestinian worshipers' IDs, detained a number of them outside the Mosque, and ordered al-Aqsa guards to step away from al-Silsila Gate.
The Israeli settlers conducted provocative tours and performed Talmudic rituals inside al-Aqsa compound while escorted by a large police force, eyewitnesses said.
Settler break-ins into al-Aqsa Mosque have been intensified since the beginning of the week for the Passover holiday.
