The extremist rabbi Yehuda Glick accompanied by dozens of Jewish settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday from the Magharaba Gate under heavy police protection.
The Islamic Endowments Department in occupied Jerusalem stated in a statement that the occupation police closed the Magharaba Gate after 89 settlers including Glick and 35 Jewish students stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
It explained that the settlers carried out provocative tours in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and received explanations about the alleged temple, and some of them tried to perform Talmudic rituals at its courtyards.
Meanwhile, restrictions were tightened on the Palestinian worshipers entering Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Israeli police stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque earlier on Sunday and set up loudspeakers in different parts of the holy Islamic site.
