Protected by the Israeli occupation police, 407 Israeli settlers raided Al-Aqsa mosque last week, Palestinian Information Centre reported on Friday.

Since 2003, the Israeli occupation police have been allowing and protecting Israeli settlers to raid Al-Aqsa mosque daily, with the exception of Fridays and Saturdays, arriving through Mughrabi Gate.

The extremist Israeli settlers, including officials, MKs and ministers, raid the Islamic holy site through Mughrabi Gate, carry out Jewish rituals inside the holy site, harass Muslim worshipers and leave through Bab Al-Silsila (Chain Gate).

The Jerusalem Department of Islamic Religious Endowments, Awqaf, have been calling for a halt of Israeli settlers and police raids in Al-Aqsa mosque, but have received no responses yet.
