OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– A state of edgy tension prevailed in al-Aqsa Mosque’s yards early Sunday morning as a round of desecration break-ins has been launched by a bunch of advocates of the so-called Israeli Temple Organizations, escorted by Israeli police forces.
Jerusalemite sources said special Israeli police forces have come down heavily on the peaceful Muslim congregation, denying them access into holy al-Aqsa Mosque and the adjacent Old City. Arbitrary military and iron barricades were set around the mosque so as to crack down on Palestinian worshippers.
A Talmudic sermon was delivered by a senior Jewish rabbi in such a remarkably over-zealous and provocative tone, the same sources added.
The break-ins came following a spate of calls launched by Israeli settler gangs in Haifa Saturday, inciting Israeli fanatics to partake in mass defilement tours in al-Aqsa at early Sunday morning to commemorate the so-called “Destruction of the Temple” on August 9, promising zero-fare transport.
Meanwhile, a large number of non-violent Muslim worshippers and sit-inners rallied near al-Aqsa gates in an attempt to gain access into the mosque to perform their religious prayers.
