JERUSALEM, December 26, 2011 (WAFA) – Groups of Jewish extremists Monday broke into al-Aqsa mosque through Bab El-Magharbeh (Dung Gate) bridge, roaming its yard under the protection of Israeli police, according to witnesses.
Senior Jewish rabbis, last week, called on their supporters to storm Al-Aqsa mosque for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah to perform religious Talmudic rituals in the mosque’s yard.
Meanwhile, hundreds of Jewish settlers, under the protection of Israeli soldiers and police late Sunday night, roamed the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem in a provocative march amid drumming and chanting of racist slogans against Arabs and Palestinians, aiming to disturb Palestinian Jerusalemites.
To be noted, a law draft was submitted on Sunday to the Israeli parliament (Knesset) to declare Jerusalem the unified capital of Israel.
