Title: Israeli Settlers Storm Al-Aqsa Mosque on Last Day of Rosh Hashanah
Guam News Factor – In a disturbing incident, Israeli settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the holiest sites in Islam, on the last day of Rosh Hashanah, with the support of Israeli occupation forces. The tensions escalated as Israeli forces attacked Palestinian worshippers at Bab as-Silsila, one of the main entrances to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
Reports indicate that Israeli forces implemented stringent security measures, forcibly removing worshippers and denying access to Palestinians under the age of 50. Shockingly, hundreds of ultranationalist Israelis managed to infiltrate the Al-Aqsa courtyard through the Morocco Gate, utilizing Israeli troops as their protection.
The Jerusalem Islamic Endowments Department confirmed that the army was working to clear the compound before the settler incursion. This move followed calls from Israeli settler groups, demanding unrestricted access to the compound for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.
In response to the harassment and intrusions by Israeli settlers, Muslim worshippers eagerly gathered at the holy site to voice their objections. However, the situation quickly spiraled out of control as Israeli forces physically assaulted and beat up three worshippers, including an elderly man and woman near Bab as-Silsila.
Adding to the growing concerns, two men were subsequently arrested within the compound and moved to an undisclosed location. This exacerbates worries about the infringement of religious rights and freedom of worship for the Palestinian population.
Video footage captured on social media circulated showing settlers touring the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyard, adding visual evidence to the troubling events that unfolded during this incident. The video has sparked outrage and renewed international calls to protect the sanctity of the holy site and ensure the safety of all worshippers.
The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound holds immense religious significance for both Muslims and Jews, making it a hotspot for tensions between Palestinian and Israeli communities. Efforts to find a peaceful resolution to this ongoing conflict seem to become increasingly distant with such escalations and provocations.
As the world watches, it is imperative that all parties involved seek to restore calm, respect religious freedom, and find a solution that grants equal rights and access to all individuals wishing to worship at this sacred site.
