Reports emerged of settlers storming the summit of Mount Ebal, located east of the city of Nablus in Palestine on Monday.

Roya’s correspondent stated that the settlers conducted Talmudic prayers at a site they refer to as "the altar of Joshua bin Nun." This action took place with heavy protection provided by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF).

Prior to this incident, hundreds of settlers had already made their way into the courtyards of the Blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. They were escorted by the IOF, entering the mosque in successive groups through the Mughrabi Gate. Once inside, these individuals engaged in Talmudic rituals as part of the Jewish "Throne" holiday.

Furthermore, large groups of settlers roamed the narrow streets of the Old City in occupied Jerusalem. They performed Talmudic rituals at various entrances to the mosque, with a specific focus on the Silsila and Qattanin gates.

This series of events followed the actions of approximately 880 settlers who, on the previous day, had entered Al-Aqsa Mosque in successive groups through the Mughrabi Gate. During their visit, they performed Talmudic rituals and presented "plant offerings" crafted from palm fronds. Some even donned the religious attire of priests. These actions have drawn attention and concern within the region and among international observers.
