Extremist Ben-Gvir leads settlers’ storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque

Dozens of Jewish extremist settlers, led by Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, on Sunday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ al-Haram al-Sharif compound in occupied East Jerusalem, under the heavy protection of Israeli escort. A statement by the General Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said this is the second time that Ben-Gvir has stormed the holy shrine since taking his ministerial post in the far-right government in 2022. The settlers carried out today’s raids through al-Magharebah Gate in successive groups, toured the mosque’s yards, listened to explanations about the purported ‘Temple Mount’, and provocatively performed their Talmudic rituals in the eastern section of the compound, it added.
