Over 1,000 Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa compound in two days

Hundreds of Israeli settlers roamed the Al-Aqsa compound in separate groups on Sunday and Monday, as Israeli police arrested six Palestinians and tightened police control over the occupied city.

More than 1,000 Zionist settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa compound in occupied Jerusalem between Sunday and Monday, Al-Aqsa compound's director, Sheikh Omar Kiswani said, reported by The New Arab.

"We haven't seen these numbers of settlers storming the sanctuary since Ramadan, last April, except on the day of the flag march a week ago," said Kiswani.

"Settlers are trying to impose new realities at each time," noted Kiswani. "On Sunday and Monday, near one of the sanctuary's gates, settlers danced and performed 'the laying down' ritual, which is all totally new inside Al-Aqsa compound." 


In late May, an Israeli court allowed Zionist settlers to perform loud prayers in the Al-Aqsa compound before the Israeli appeal court overruled the decision.

In October 2021, another Israeli court allowed non-Muslims to hold silent prayers in the compound. According to the historically-observed status-quo of Al-Aqsa, only Muslims are allowed to pray in the sanctuary.


The latest storming by Zionist settlers to Al-Aqsa occurs in the midst of tightening Israeli control measures over Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem, which was implemented a few days prior to an Israeli flag march held by Zionists last week.
