Israeli settlers under protection of occupation troops barged into Al-Aqsa Mosque compound Sunday through Bab El-Maghreba Gate and carried out provocative tours in the environs of the mosque.
According to eyewitnesses, more than 140 settlers have roamed the mosque's yard, before leaving through Bab Al-Silsila Gate.
The Ministry of Awqaf (Endowment) said Israeli settlers stormed the mosque 23 times in August.
The site of the mosque is subject to frequent attacks by Israeli settlers.
