JERUSALEM– Scores of Jewish settlers on Thursday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in the city of Al-Quds (occupied East Jerusalem), a Palestinian official told Anadolu Agency.Backed by Israeli forces, about 32 settlers stormed the compound from the Al-Magharba Gate, provoking Muslim worshippers, said one Islamic Endowment Authority official.According to the official, Israeli forces expelled three worshippers and questioned three students “as part of Israel’s policy of harassing worshippers.”Israeli officials, meanwhile, were not available for comment. In recent months, groups of extremist Jewish settlers – often accompanied by Israeli security forces – have stepped up their attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.

It later annexed the holy city in 1980, claiming it as the capital of the self-proclaimed Jewish state.
