Israeli settlers began storming the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in memory of the so-called “destruction of the Temple”, under heavy guard and protection of the Israeli occupation police.
The settlers performed rituals in front of Bab Al-Qattanin, one of the gates to Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied city of Al-Quds.
Hamas spokesperson for the city of Al-Quds, Muhammad Hamadeh, warned against settlers storming Al-Aqsa Mosque, threatening that there will be consequences.
Hamadeh added, “Allowing the settlers to storm Al-Aqsa will be confronted by our people who are ready to confront the arrogance of the occupation and its settlers.”
Earlier, the colonial, expansionist so-called “Temple Mount Movement” called for organizing large-scale incursions into the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in memory of the so-called “destruction of the Temple”, on August 7.

The group urged Israeli settlers to organize large mass incursions and perform Talmudic rituals therein.
In this context, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid decided yesterday to allow settlers to storm the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, in response to the demand of the extremist groups.
The Palestinian Resistance factions warned against these calls and called on the Palestinian people, and the Arab and Islamic nations to thwart these plans.
The Israeli occupation forces on Saturday evening suppressed a sit-in protest organized by people in occupied Al-Quds in the vicinities of Damascus Gate, denouncing the Israeli aggression on Gaza.
The Israeli occupation forces were deployed in large numbers in the Damascus Gate area, attacking protesters and physically assaulting them, in addition to arresting many young people.
The Israeli occupation launched an aggression on the Gaza Strip last Friday, which resulted in the martyrdom of Taiseer Al-Jaabari, a military commander in the northern Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Resistance factions mourned the martyrs of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, stressing that the occupation bears all the repercussions of this aggression.
Al-Quds Brigades launched a defensive operation in response to the Israeli occupation’s aggression on the Gaza Strip, by launching salvoes of rockets at the occupied Palestinian territories.
