Zionist Settlers Storm Al-Aqsa Compound amid Flare-Up
Local Editor

‘Israeli' settlers stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound under the heavy escort of security forces at a time of boiling tensions over the occupation regime's siege of Muslims' third holiest site.

Zionist Settlers Storm Al-Aqsa Compound amid Flare-Up

Footage circulated across social media on Monday showing Zionist settlers ambling around comfortably at the sensitive place as Palestinian worshipers squatted outside the compound.

Meanwhile, ‘Israeli' occupation forces also dispersed protesters staging a sit-in protest in front of the metal detectors the apartheid regime has set up at the entrance to restrict Palestinian access.

The occupation entity fully closed off the compound to Muslims after a reported shootout on July 14 near the site that left two ‘Israeli' soldiers and three Palestinians martyred. The move sparked far-and-wide condemnations across the Muslim world.

It restored access to the compound later, but placed metal detectors at its front, prompting Muslims to refuse entering the site.

Those participating in the sit-in include staffers of the al-Quds Islamic Waqf [Endowment] organization, which is trusted with controlling and managing the Islamic edifices on and around the compound.

The Zionist regime evicted the staffers as part of its crackdown, and now the body says it has been fully incapacitated in exercising its duties.

The ‘Israeli' security forces regularly allow extremists to enter the compound under police protection, while restricting Palestinian access.

Amid the escalation, a footage appeared online showing a female Palestinian youngster rolling out her prayer rug and wearing full-body veil before beginning to say her prayers close to one of the gates leading to the site.
