The Israeli occupation forces launch a massive arrest campaign across the occupied West Bank, as settlers raid Al-Aqsa mosque under heavy IOF protection.
Israeli settler groups have forced their way into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in occupied Al-Quds under heavy Israeli occupation forces (IOF) protection.
Department of Islamic Endowments in Al-Quds said in a statement on Monday that dozens of Israeli settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque through Bab Al Maghariba, performed Talmudic rituals, and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards until they exited through Bab Al-Silsila.
The statement added that the number of settlers who participated in the raids on Al-Aqsa increased during various Jewish holidays and occasions.
On Sunday, about 340 Israeli settlers stormed Al-Aqsa mosque during the morning and evening periods.
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) launched a massive arrest campaign across the occupied West Bank, while Palestinian youths confronted them.
Furthermore, the IOF stormed neighborhoods in Ramallah, Beir Lahm, Nablus, and Al-Khalil this morning, in addition to raiding Al-Jalazun refugee camp and arresting ten young Palestinians.
IOF have also stormed the outskirts of the at-Tira neighborhood in the central West Bank city of Ramallah last night.
The occupation forces arrested three young Palestinians from Al-Jalazun refugee camp, north of Ramallah. The camp witnessed confrontations between dozens of young Palestinians and the occupation forces, who used excessive force firing gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets against unarmed Palestinians.
