Feiglin leads settlers in al-Aqsa raid, continued clashes in West Bank

Local media has reported that dozens of Israeli settlers, this time headed by Likud party member and deputy Knesset speaker Moshe Feiglin, broke into al-Aqsa courtyards on Sunday morning.

According to Al Ray, eyewitnesses said that tension prevailed among Palestinian worshipers, while settlers toured al-Aqsa courtyards and took photos.

Palestinians chanted “Allahu Akbar (God is Greatest)” in their outrage against the invasion.

Israeli forces again prevented worshippers under the age of 50 from entering the mosque, in a violation of Palestinian freedom which has now become routine, in recent months.

Israeli settlers assaulted two Palestinians in two separate incidents in West Jerusalem, on Sunday, while they were at their place of work, according to media sources.

On Sunday morning, WAFA has reported that a group of settlers assaulted one Palestinian individual while he was at his workplace, all the while chanting anti-Arab slogans, such as ‘death to Arabs’.

Earlier in the night, settlers targeted a Palestinian taxi driver after stopping his car, upon which they verbally assaulted him, beat him and sprayed him with pepper gas.

Over 550,000 colonial settlers now live in continually expanding developments across the region, in contravention of international laws to which Israel is signatory. more
