Jewish settlers entered the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem via Magharebah Gate on Sunday under tight Israeli police protection.
Local sources said that around 80 Jewish settlers defiled the holy Islamic site in the early morning and organized provocative tours in its courtyards.
The Jewish settlers usually listen to briefings, during those tours, on the alleged Jewish temple and its history and attempt to perform Talmudic rituals at the eastern area of the holy Islamic compound.
Tension is still running high in the holy city and in the vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque since the Israeli occupation authorities installed metal detectors at its entrances a week ago, a measure that was refused by the Muslim worshipers.
