Dozens of settlers stormed, Thursday morning, the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reported that dozens of settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Mughrabi Gate, under strict protection from the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF).
Similarly, the IOF tightened measures for entering the mosque and prevented dozens of young men from entering.
Dozens of those stationed in the mosque were suffocated and injured with rubber-coated metal bullets while the Qibli prayer hall was surrounded.
Notably, extremist Jewish groups had called for a massive storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and raising the Israeli Occupation flag inside its courtyards.
On Wednesday, Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett issued instructions to allow extremist settlers to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday to celebrate Independence Day.
