Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed on Wednesday the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The eyewitness said that the settlers carried out provocative tours and performed their racist Talmudic rituals.
The blessed Al-Aqsa is exposed to settlers’ incursions on an almost daily basis.
Over the past few days, the Gaza Strip has been subjected to Israeli aggression that has left 44 civilians, including 15 children and 4 women killed, and 36 injured, in addition to the systematic destruction of private and public property and infrastructure.
The tension in Gaza is the most severe since May 2021, following fierce military fighting between Palestinian factions and Israel that lasted for 11 days and left more than 255 Palestinians and 13 Israelis dead.
Earlier, Egypt strongly condemned Al-Aqsa Mosque’s storming by extremist groups under the protection of Israel’s forces.
In a statement, Ambassador Ahmed Hafez, the official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the step constitutes a new violation of the status quo and provocation of Arab and Muslim feelings.
He stressed that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a purely Islamic endowment for Muslims, calling for the urgent stop of any violations targeting the Arab, Islamic, and Christian identity of the city of Jerusalem and all its holy sites.
The Egyptian diplomat urged the Israeli authorities to bear their responsibility in accordance with the rules of international law.
He went on to say that the act might also fuel the situation in Jerusalem City and some other areas.
Breaking into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is an irresponsible act that aims to make gains inside Israel and achieve the goals of the far-right.
