Some 130 Israeli Jews desecrated the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem this morning, the Palestinian Information Centre reported.

At least 126, including 55 students of Hebrew institutes and ten government officials, entered the Mosque in groups through the Mughrabi Gate and toured its courtyards under police escort, according to local sources.

A number were seen performing prayers or rituals during their tours at the Islamic holy site.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish Israelis, under security escort. While they are present in the compound, entry restrictions are imposed on Muslim worshippers.
