Several groups of extremist Jewish settlers under police protection desecrated Al Aqsa Mosque on Thursday morning; Israeli troops prevented hundreds of Palestinians worshipers to get into it.

Al Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage said that a state of tension is now prevailing among the Palestinians in the occupied Jerusalem as a result of the repeated Jewish violations of the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque.

The foundation confirmed that the Palestinian worshipers, who have been inside The Mosque and its for days to protect it, clashed with the invading troops and settlers who stormed the Mosque from Al-Maghariba Gate.

“The armed Israeli policemen detained three Palestinians from the 1948 occupied territories during the confrontations as well as the Mosque warden,” the foundation said.

A large number of Israeli troops and policemen have tightened the blockade on A Aqsa Mosque from inside and outside and banned all Palestinians from getting into it.

Israeli special forces were also seen encircling the grey dome and closing its doors in the early morning, while the Palestinian worshipers locked up inside were heard chanting “Allah the Akbar.”

Extremist Jewish groups from Kiryat Araba had declared their intent yesterday to organize a mass break-in at Al Aqsa Mosque in order to strengthen the Israeli sovereignty over their alleged temple mount and get it from Muslims.

Groups of Israeli Jewish settlers desecrated the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque and walked in its courtyards on Monday morning, witnesses said.

The Settlers who were guarded by Israeli policemen passed through Al Maghariba Gate and entered irrespectively to the main courtyards of the Holy Mosque. That was a provocative measure for Muslims’ religious sympathy.

Senior Jewish rabbis urged, last week, their supporters to enter the Al Aqsa Mosque on the day of Hanukkah which is known as the festival of lights to perform Talmudic rituals and dance for several days.

Hundreds of Jewish settlers last night marched provocatively across the streets of the old city of Jerusalem chanting racist offences against Palestinians, performing dances and beating drums in order to disturb residents.

They uttered offensive insults against the Palestinians; calling for killing them or expelling them from the Holy City of Jerusalem.
