Dozens Of Israeli Colonizers, Soldiers And Police Officers, Storm Al-Aqsa

May 18, 2023

Dozens of fanatic illegal Israeli colonizers, including an extremist Member of Knesset, accompanied by soldiers and police officers, stormed the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque after the army assaulted and forcibly removed dozens of Muslim worshippers.

Many extremist former and current government ministers and members of Knesset, including Negev and Galilee Minister Yitzhak Wasserlauf, from the extreme Otzma Yehudit party, accompanied the colonizers in the invasion.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded the Al-Qibli Mosque in the Al-Aqsa compound before assaulting many worshipers, including women.

They added that the soldiers dragged many worshipers from Al-Qibli Mosque and other parts of the Al-Aqsa compound to empty it before allowing the fanatic colonizers, headed by extremist Member of Knesset, MP Yehuda Glick, to conduct their provocative tours carrying Israeli flags.

The Israeli army and the police also pushed hundreds of soldiers and officers into the Old City and all areas surrounding Al-Aqsa to prevent the Palestinians from entering it ahead of the provocative march, planned by thousands of extremists, who intend not to only march in Jerusalem carrying Israeli flags but march in Al-Aqsa calling for its demolition to “rebuild the temple.”

Various Palestinian officials in occupied Palestinian warned of the consequences of this serious violation, especially the planned “Israeli flags processions,” especially in Al-Aqsa, while armed resistance factions in Gaza said the violation could lead to a serious escalation.
