Sunday, Israeli Occupation settlers guarded by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem, as reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA. 

The Jordan-run Islamic Waqf authority said settlers entered the compound through the Moroccan Gate in groups and performed rituals.

The Islamic Waqf has repeatedly described the settlers' presence in Al-Aqsa Mosque as "provocative," saying that Palestinian worshippers and guards at Al-Aqsa "feel uncomfortable" with the presence of the IOF and settlers inside the Islamic holy site.
