18:00 Aug 1 2011 Jerusalem

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Jerusalemite youths managed on Monday night to abort an attempt by a group of 20 Jewish settlers to storm the holy Aqsa Mosque during Tarawih prayers.

One of the mosque’s guards said that the settlers from Kiryat Arba, in Al-Khalil, managed to enter the Aqsa plaza through the Asbat gate while chanting racist slogans including “Death to the Arabs”.

He said that the youths repelled the settlers and blocked their entry into the mosque where worshipers were performing the late night prayers in Ramadan known as the Tarawih.

The guard said that Israeli police arrived to the scene, arrested five young Jerusalemites, and took the settlers away.
