RNA - “The highest number of incursions [by settlers] was recorded in July,” a statement released by Jerusalem’s Religious Endowment Authority on Wednesday said, Middle East News reported.     

 

“This is a clear indication of the increasing violations by settlers in the holy site,” the statement added.

 

Earlier in the month, over a thousand Israeli settlers stormed the al-Aqsa compound amid escalation of violence by Israeli forces and settlers against the Palestinian people.

 

Israeli forces have recently stormed al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site for Muslims, in the Israeli-occupied Old City of East Jerusalem al-Quds, arresting scores of Palestinians. Dozens of Palestinians also sustained injuries after Israeli policemen attacked Muslim worshipers at the Aqsa Mosque.

 

Abdul-Hakim Hanini, member of Hamas's Political Bureau, stated that the Israeli police brutal attack on al-Aqsa Mosque and its worshipers is a new crime which Israel must pay a heavy price for.
