Egypt has strongly denounced the raid on the Al-Aqsa Mosque by a group of Israeli extremists, who were protected by the Israeli police forces. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam and is located in the occupied East Jerusalem. According to reports, dozens of extremist settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday, from the side of the Moroccan Gate, under heavy guard by the Israeli police. The Islamic Waqf Department in Occupied Jerusalem said that the settlers received explanations about their alleged temple on the site of the mosque. The Israeli forces and police imposed severe restrictions on the entry of worshippers to the mosque from Jerusalem and other parts of the occupied Palestinian territory.
