The Israeli occupation forces prevented a group of Muslim women from entering Al-Aqsa compound on Thursday, under the pretext of the so-called “black list” of women to be denied entry via all gates, prompting them to gather in front of Al-Silsila (chain) Gate and refuse to leave.
The Israeli forces also seized the ID cards of Palestinian women and girls before allowing them to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque. They had been barred from entering the mosque during the 10-day period of Al-Aqsa storming by the settlers in the hours before noon.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Special Police Units arrested the Palestinian youth Samih Al-Haddad from inside Al-Aqsa Mosque and took him to one of the outposts in the Old City for interrogation due to his participation in protests against the provocative tours of Al-Aqsa compound by the settlers.
It is to be noted that the Jewish settlers renewed on Thursday their storming of Al-Aqsa through the Al-Magharebah Gate under the guard of the Israeli police.
