Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed on Monday morning Al-Quds's (Jerusalem’s) al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—via the Maghareba Gate.

43 Israeli settlers, escorted by policemen, broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque as part of the morning break-in shift and carried out a round of sacrilegious tours.

Heavily-armed Israeli policemen and special forces provided a security shield to the settlers as they provocatively toured the holy site.

15 intelligence officers also showed up at the site during the break-in.

At the same time, member of the Awqaf Department Ashraf al-Sharbati was arrested at the Aqsa Mosque by Israeli cops and dragged to an Israeli detention center.

Meanwhile, the peaceful Muslim worshipers have been subjected to tough crackdowns and restrictions by the Israeli police near the main entrances to the site. 

Several worshipers have been searched and dozens more have had their IDs seized while attempting to enter al-Aqsa to perform their daily prayers.
