Ultra-orthodox Jews break into the Aqsa Mosque
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, – 130 Jewish extremists stormed into the Aqsa Mosque Monday morning from the Maghareba Gate, accompanied by reinforced Israeli police, local sources said.
Five groups entered through the gate, each group led by a head rabbi, one security guard reported.
The Mosque’s guards monitored the Jews from afar for fear of being arrested as they toured the Mosque’s courtyards and halls.
Israeli police and border guards raided the Aqsa Mosque late Saturday night and arrested a group of Palestinians inside the Mosque.
The troops took down a Palestinian flag and banners congratulating Palestinians over the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holidays
