The foundation affirmed that hundreds of Palestinian religious students and worshipers were at the Mosque shouting Alahuakbar (Allah is greater) in protest at the Jews’ violation of the sanctity of their Mosque

It explained that four groups of Jewish settlers, including rabbis, entered the Mosque’s courtyard through Al-Maghariba Gate under police protection.

A number of rabbis, including extremist Likud figure Yehuda Glick, were among the settlers and gave explanations about the alleged Jewish temple.

Meanwhile, the Israeli police intensified its presence inside and outside the Mosque and intercepted Palestinian worshipers at the gates for ID checks.
