Private units in the morning broke into the mosque, vandalized it, threw rubber-coated metal bullets on the worshipers and assaulted some youths. In addition, more than 250 settlers have broke into the mosque from Al Magharba gate.

4 Israeli border guards were injured in the clashes. Two of them were moved to hospital for treatment, and had light injuries.

In the midst of these attacks, the Israeli minister of agriculture, Uri Ariel from the Jewish Home right-wing party has also provocatively broke into Al-Aqsa mosque, in coordination with the ministry of interior, heavily guarded.

Israeli forces set flying checkpoints on the gates of Al-Aqsa, preventing men under 50 from entering it. Women and seniors were forced to leave their ID cards on the entrance.

After 6:30 this morning, IOF closed the gates for everyone.

The Israeli police have also broken the fire system in the mosque, making the water leak all through the building .

On Saturday, Israeli settlers severely assaulted a Palestinian child near one of the gates leading to Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem.

According to WAFA news agency, eyewitnesses said that extremist Israeli settlers assaulted the child, who was not identified, near al-Ghawanma Gate, prompting a group of Palestinians to intervene and save him. Settlers eventually managed to flee the scene.

Israeli settlers repeatedly break into Al-Aqsa mosque in a provocative manner, backed by Israeli occupation right-wing government and military.

In Islamic belief, Al-Aqsa mosque in East Jerusalem,  is considered the third holiest place in Islam.  Israel claims sits upon the proclaimed temple mount, which is the holiest place in Judaism.
