3093 settlers at al-Aqsa in May

A report issued by Quds Press news agency showed that 3,093 Jewish settlers stormed al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem during the last month.

Quds Press revealed that 2,649 settlers stormed al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israeli-controlled Magharebah gate and roamed its plazas under protection of Israeli police and heavily armed Special Forces.

387 Jewish students participated in the settlers break-ins. Jewish students are usually allowed by the police to tour the courtyards of the Muslims’ holy shrine without obliging them to walk in certain lanes.

56 Members of Israeli police and the Shin Bet stormed the holy site in both military and civil uniforms.

On the so called Jerusalem Day, which is an Israeli national holiday commemorating “the reunification of Jerusalem” which is the day on which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, al-Aqsa Mosque was stormed by 968 settlers, the highest number in years according to al-Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Department.

653 Settlers including 90 students broke into the plazas of the holy site during the first five days of the holy fasting month of Ramadan. The incursions were intensified on the Shavuot Jewish holiday which coincided on the 4th and 5th days of Ramadan.
