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.
