About 100 Israeli settlers invaded Al Aqsa mosque today in Ramadan under the protection of Israeli security forces. This has become an almost daily event in defiance of the Jordanian trust which governs the mosque compound in East Jerusalem. Meanwhile, there is video documentation of Israeli security forces at the mosque violently beating a young Palestinian boy & an older man. Protests must continue in solidarity with Palestinian religious freedom which they are denied as part of the military occupation.
