Describing the forces as “behaving aggressively,” the foundation said ten soldiers walked around the compound with a tour guide.
Such incidents are a violation of the sanctity of the compound, the organization said.
The Al-Aqsa compound, containing the mosque and the Dome of the Rock, is the third holiest site in Islam and abuts the site where Jews believe the ancient Second Temple stood. The flashpoint site is under the custody of the Waqf (Islamic Endowment) authorities.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with any official visit by troops.
