Ramallah, Dozens of Jewish extremists settlers on Sunday forced their way into Al-Aqsa Mosque / Haram Al Sharif compound in occupied Jerusalem, according to a Palestinian official.

General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told Petra's reporter in Ramallah that today's raid was carried out under protection of Israeli soldiers who arrested three young men from al-Aqsa for allegedly obstructing the settlers' intrusion.

"The settlers performed Talmudic rituals and provocatively toured the courtyards of the mosque," he said.
