Dozens of Jewish settlers on Monday morning desecrated the Aqsa Mosque under tight police protection.
According to the Islamic Awqaf Authority in Jerusalem, at least 130 settlers entered the Mosque through al-Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards under police guard.
34 female settlers in army uniform also defiled the Mosque’s courtyards.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers and police forces in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Israeli police close al-Maghariba Gate, which is used by Jews to enter the Mosque, at 10:30 am after the settlers complete their morning tours at the holy site. Later in the afternoon, the same gate is reopened for evening tours by settlers.
