Friday, 7 September 2012 / PNN – 30 members of Israel’s intelligence community headed by Likud member, Moshe Feiglin, and groups of settlers broke into al-Aqsa mosque since early hours of [Thursday] morning.
Al Aqsa Institute said in a press release that Moshe Feiglin, escorted by settlers broke into the mosque to perform Talmudic rituals, under the protection of Israeli forces.
Eyewitnesses said that Feiglin and settlers raided al-Aqsa mosque at 8 AM from al-Magharbeh gate and headed to the mosque where they performed their religious rituals and walked in the mosque’s yards.
Al-Aqsa Institute described “Israeli continuous incursions and the profanation of the mosque by leaders of Israeli parties, members of Knesset and settlers, with very dangerous procedures, in which occupation attempts to implicit Jewish presence daily in al-Aqsa mosque, in a step to impose the decision issued earlier to divide al-Aqsa mosque between Palestinians and Jews.”
Al-Aqsa Institute called on Palestinians, especially Jerusalemites to increase their presence in al-Aqsa mosque to help protecting it from such incursions and profanations.
