Groups of settlers broke into the mosque's yards via Bab Al-Maghariba gate, performed talmudic rituals and carried out provocative tours in the complex, local sources said.
Israeli police forces set up checkpoints on all roads leading to Al-Aqsa Mosque, in an attempt to prevent worshipers from reaching the holy site.
The settlers have intensified their daily storming of the holy place over the past phase under the pretext of celebrating the Jewish feasts.
