Zionist settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Al-Quds on Sunday and Brutally attacked Palestinian worshippers as they celebrated the Jewish New Year, so-called Rosh Hashanah.

Under the escort and protection of Israeli occupation troops extremist settlers broke into the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carried out provocative tours in the courtyards of the holy compound.

Video footage posted on social media shows an Israeli settler blowing a trumpet near Bab Al-Silsilah, one of the main gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Another footage shows settlers in biblical clothing touring the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards.

In another video, Israeli occupation forces appeared brutally assaulting a Palestinian woman near the holy compound.

Palestinian sources occupation forces restricted access of Palestinian worshipers to Al-Aqsa Mosque, with several arrests being made in the holy city.

Commenting on the Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa, Hamas Spokesman Mohammad Hamadeh stressed that the Israeli enemy “aims through the desecration of the holy compound to boast about fake victory in Al-Quds.” In this context, he hailed the steadfastness of the Palestinian people, whom he said are united in the battle to defend Al-Aqsa.

For his part, Islamic Jihad’s politburo member Ahmad Al-Modallal warned that all options of the Palestinian resistance to confront the Israeli aggression are on table.

Sunday’s incursion into the holy site coincides with a significant surge in settler violence against Palestinians across the occupied West Bank, which Israeli officials admit is taking place with a green light from the occupation government.
