Extremist Israeli Jewish Rabbi Yehuda Glick yesterday performed Talmudic rituals in front of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jordan's news agency Petra reported.
General Director of the Islamic Endowments and Al-Aqsa Mosque Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told the news agency that a group of settlers arrived in the Al-Aqsa courtyards through the Mughrabi Gate.
He said that they were escorted by a large number of heavily armed Israeli occupation police and special forces.
Glick has previously called for the demolition of Al-Aqsa Mosque to build the alleged Jewish Temple in its place and he has been known for his racist views towards Palestinians and Arabs.
