Groups of extremist settlers led by radical rabbi Yehuda Glick early Monday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram al-Sharif compound via the Bab Al-Magharebah gate.

A statement by the Jerusalem Awqaf Department said that the rabbi and the settlers broke into the compound under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces.

The Israeli police stationed at the mosque's main gates, imposed tight measures on Palestinian women and youth and seized their ID cards before entering the Al-Aqsa.
