171 Israeli settlers break into 3rd holiest site in Islam


171 Israeli settlers on Wednesday morning stormed the plazas of the holy al-Aqsa Mosque—Muslims’ third holiest site.

A PIC news correspondent said 160 Israeli settlers, three intelligence officers, and eight journalists, escorted by heavily-armed cops, forced their entry into the al-Aqsa Mosque via the al-Maghareba and al-Silsila gates.

The break-in lasted from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

At least 300 Israeli settlers, including 33 intelligence officers, broke into the holy site for the period from December 9 to December 15, down from 3,000 in October. 2017 is expected to see a hike in such Israeli break-ins.
