International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group: Friday morning, 160 settlers under the protection of Israeli police marched through the courtyards of al-Aqsa Mosque from the Mughrabi Gate.

Director of Media at Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage, Mahmoud Abu al-Atta, told ALRay that 160 settlers, 30 of them Israeli college students, stormed al-Aqsa Mosque, organized tours in its courtyards, and tried to perform Talmudic prayers before Muslim worshipers prevented them from doing so.

Israeli authorities seized more than 40 identity cards from worshipers, he added.
Abu al-Atta also warned of the possible outbreak of clashes at any given moment, as calls to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque by Jewish religious institutions frequent and ongoing.

In recent months, groups of Jewish settlers, often accompanied by Israeli security forces, have repeatedly forced their way into the complex, angering Palestinian Muslims and leading to violent confrontations.
