WAFA correspondence said that more than 40 extremist Israeli settlers broke into the holy mosque in groups, under heavy protection from Israeli police.

The settlers performed Talmudic rituals and prayers at the holy site.

In late 2015, repeated incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound by Jewish settlers and Israeli security personnel sparked months-long tensions in the occupied Palestinian territories.
