JERUSALEM, October 2, 2012 (WAFA) – Confrontations erupted on Tuesday between Palestinian worshipers and Israeli police after around 50 Jewish settlers and several Rabbis broke into al-Aqsa mosque yards, conducting Talmudic rituals on the occasion of the Jewish Sukkot holiday, according to witnesses.

One of the workers at the mosque said Extremist Moshe Feiglin, one of the Likud party’s leaders along with several rabbis and around 50 settlers broke into al-Aqsa mosque yard and conducted Jewish rituals, under Israeli police protection, provoking worshipers and leading to confrontations.

Israeli police used electric sticks against worshipers, who are all over 45 year old; police, since early morning, forced Palestinians under 45 years of age to leave the mosque.

Meanwhile, Israeli police early Monday morning arrested four journalists, a television cameraman, and a woman from inside the mosque.
