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

Today's raid by the radical settlers was carried out from Al- Magharebah Gate under heavy protection of Israeli special police, the General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told Petra's reporter in Ramallah.

The settlers, he noted, toured the mosque's courtyards amid attempts to perform their Tulmodic rites.

The Israeli forces imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian youths into Al-Aqsa and seized some Palestinians' IDs at the gates until their departure, he further said.
