Foundation: Israelis perform religious rites at Al-Aqsa
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Three groups of Israelis were given a guarded tour of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City, a religious foundation said Sunday.
The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Heritage and Waqf (Islamic endowment) said 130 Israelis toured the holy compound accompanied by rabbis and soldiers, and performed religious rituals.
It said the groups caused a state of tension with the several hundred students present in the mosque.
