Extremist Jewish Groups Call for Massive Raid of Al-Aqsa Mosque

The so-called Temple Mount Groups, a body of extremist Jewish organizations, have called for a massive raid of Al-Aqsa Mosque to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim tomorrow, the Shehab news agency reported yesterday.

According to Shehab, the groups announced their planned raid on Facebook and said that they would organize tours and other activities inside and around the different facilities of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In addition to the extremist organizations, Israeli MKs and ministers are expected to take part in the planned raid.

Israeli occupation forces regularly provide protection for settlers who enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out religious rituals there. Many Palestinians, on the other hand, are banned from entry while settlers desecrate the Muslim holy site.
