4,345 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Jewish Passover

The Jerusalem Governorate announced on Tuesday that 4,345 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa on the Jewish Passover holiday.

The governorate added in a press statement that the Jewish Passover holiday this year witnessed an increase compared to the Passover holiday of last year 2023, during which 3,430 settlers stormed throughout the days of the holiday.

Local sources said that the increase in the number of intruders is due to the occupation intensifying its attack on the stationed people and preventing a large number of them from entering Al-Aqsa during the incursion.

The sources added that the Israeli occupation authorities deported dozens of residents of the 1948 territories and Jerusalem from Al-Aqsa Mosque, and prevented citizens from the West Bank from entering the city and praying in the mosque.

Since this morning, 126 settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Mughrabi Gate side, under heavy guard from the Israeli occupation police.

The Israeli occupation police tightened their military procedures at the gates of the Old City and Al-Aqsa Mosque, and imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers.
