The Israeli occupation police on Sunday allowed hundreds of Jewish settlers to desecrate the Aqsa Mosque’s courtyards three times on Sunday, the first day of Eid al-Adha.
According to Maariv newspaper, the Israeli police allowed about 1,729 settlers to enter the Aqsa Mosque.
However, Jerusalemite sources affirmed that the settlers who toured the Mosque totaled about 13,35 and that the Israeli media exaggerated their number for propaganda purposes.
Meanwhile, Israeli police forces stormed, following the Eid prayers, the Aqsa Mosque and violently attacked Muslim worshipers as groups of settlers started to enter the Mosque and tour its courtyards.
