Aqsa guards foil settlers’ attempt to sneak into the mosque
Aqsa guards foil settlers’ attempt to sneak into the mosque
[ 24/03/2013 - 10:52 AM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Aqsa guards foiled on Saturday afternoon the attempt by four Jewish settlers to sneak into the Aqsa mosque.

The guards said that two were captured and handed to Israeli policemen while two others managed to escape, adding that they tried to enter the Aqsa through rooftops of nearby buildings in Bab Al-Silsela and Qatanin.

They said that the purpose of their attempt was not known as yet.

Jewish settlers routinely attempt to enter the Aqsa mosque to offer Talmudic rituals. Warnings have recently been voiced of possible attacks by those settlers against the holy site.
