Nearly 30,000 Israeli settlers carried out break-ins into al-Aqsa Mosque during 2018, according to official statistics.

Spokesman for Al-Quds's (Jerusalem's) Islamic Awqaf Department Feras al-Dibs said that 29,900 Israeli settlers broke into al-Aqsa Mosque in 2018, a 4,000 increase compared to the previous year.

The Islamic Awqaf has repeatedly called for an end to the settler provocative tours but never received a response by the Israeli authorities.

Al-Dibs said that the Israeli police usually facilitate settler break-ins through al-Maghareba Gate, which has been under Israeli control since 1967.

Israeli settlers conduct incursions into al-Aqsa Mosque on a daily basis, except on Saturdays and Fridays, in two rounds: the morning and the afternoon.
