Ramallah, A group of extremist Jewish settlers on Thursday stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque/ Haram Al Sharif compound in occupied Jerusalem, a Palestinian source confirmed.

General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told Petra's reporter in Ramallah that dozens of extremist settlers broke their way inside the Muslim's holy shrine under the protection of Israeli army.

"Entering through the Maghrabeh Gate, the intruders also performed Talmudic rituals and provocatively toured the courtyards of the mosque, amid a wide deployment of Israeli forces throughout the holy compound" he said.
