RAMALLAH – Dozens of Israeli settlers Monday morning stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem, under protection from Israeli occupation police, WAFA reported.
Witnesses said scores of settlers entered Al-Aqsa Mosque in separate groups, where they conducted provocative tours through the courtyards of the mosque, received explanations about the alleged “Jewish Temple,” and performed Talmudic rituals near the Dome of the Rock.
Israeli occupation forces, meanwhile, detained 10 Palestinians, including a woman and a child, from Ramallah and al-Bireh, according to security sources and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).
PPS said that Israeli forces conducted a military raid into the town of Silwad, east of Ramallah, where they detained four Palestinians, including a 17-year-old child.
It said at least six Palestinians were detained from different areas across Ramallah city after raiding their homes and inflicted damage to their contents.
