Nearly 150 Jewish settlers stormed the Al- Aqsa Mosque Compound yesterday morning under Israeli army protection, Quds Press reported.

The settlers were accompanied by nearly 50 Jewish tour guides telling them about the alleged Jewish links to the site.

The news agency said it has been documented that some 17,474 Israelis stormed the mosque in 2016, the highest number of incursions in the past years.

Meanwhile, the month of October witnessed the highest number of incursions where 3,000 Israelis stormed the mosque. The number increased greatly due to Jewish holidays which took place during that month.
