After a 19-day closure of the Mughrabi Gate (one of the doors of the Al-Aqsa Mosque) in the face of Jewish extremists, the occupation reopened its doors to settlers on Sunday morning, amid an intense deployment of the occupation police and special forces in the mosque's squares, who attacked the worshipers and those stationed in the mosque.
The occupation forces expelled all the youths who managed to reach the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and closed the Mughrabi Gate in the morning to facilitate the storming of about 125 extremists into the Al-Aqsa Mosque squares.
The occupation forces have tightened their measures to secure the settler incursions since midnight last night, by deploying reinforcements from the occupation forces in the corridors leading to the mosque and its surroundings, and before the dawn prayer, attacks began on everyone approaching the gates of Al-Aqsa, and most of them were recorded in front of the Lions Gate.

The director of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Omar Al-Kiswani, said that thousands were expected to arrive to perform the Fajr prayer in the mosque, but the number of those who performed it inside it did not exceed 400, all of them elderly.
In his interview with Al-Jazeera Net, Al-Kiswani added that the door of the chain, the majlis, and a station are opened in front of the worshipers to pray Fajr daily, but with the military restrictions, many people were not allowed to enter through it to perform the prayer, and in the fourth minute after the seventh, the Israeli police opened the iron gate of the bridge leading to the Mughrabi Gate in front of the extremists. And more than 80 elements of the special forces and police were deployed to prepare for the storming.
Al-Kiswani referred to the targeting of Waqf employees since the morning with a campaign of arrests from Al-Aqsa, among them the guard Fadi Alian and the employee of the Manuscript Restoration Center Ali and Zouz, in addition to Isa al-Dabbagh and Basem Zughair from the Al-Aqsa Reconstruction Committee.

He said, "Guard Alyan was arrested for filming the intrusion of the first group of extremists, and this is one of his duties as a guard to document attacks inside the mosque. Students and a teacher of Sharia schools located inside Al-Aqsa were also attacked after hindering their entry to schools."
Al-Kiswani commented on the re-incursion today, saying that the occupation wants to preserve the change in the status quo in Al-Aqsa, and continued, "We, as endowments, have requested that the situation in the mosque return to what it was before 2003 that the entry of non-Muslims to Al-Aqsa is through the Waqf Department. Islamic extremists only prevented the storming of these extremists. "

In turn, Ziad Abhais, a researcher in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque affairs, believes that there are three important dimensions for the resumption of extremist incursions into the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque this morning.
The first dimension added, "The religious replacement in Al-Aqsa is a central goal of the Israeli government, and it has only temporarily stopped it before the popular will of Jerusalem in the last ten days of Ramadan and under the direct strikes of the resistance after it."
He pointed out that the occupation government resumed the incursions as soon as the reason for deterrence was removed, "and this confirms that true protection for Al-Aqsa will not be achieved without his liberation, and that as long as he is occupied, attempts to Judaize him and obliterate his identity will not stop, and this will keep Al-Aqsa the engine for more revolutions and donations, and it was not expected in any way." Only from this confrontation is to end the incursions and protect Al-Aqsa in light of such an equation. "
As for the second dimension - Abhais says - that in the shorter term, the Israeli government wants this decision to confirm that it has not committed to anything in Jerusalem in the truce, and to hit its enemies' morale as returning to the first square, as if Ramadan and the war after it had not changed anything.
"But this will not erase the fact that it has become aware of the impossibility of resolving in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa, and that it has become bound by a triple deterrent equation that has gradually crystallized since 2014 with popular donations, individual operations and armed resistance from Gaza, and that it has become governed by fear of the elements of this equation in all its assessments and decisions in Jerusalem." .

, Abhais stressed that the resumption of these incursions today comes to preserve the gains and prevent further retreat. This calls today to continue Rabat and evoke the popular will to build on what was achieved in Ramadan and in the battle of the "Jerusalem sword", and forcing the occupation to continue retreating in the city.
As for the third dimension, Abhais asserts that it is directed towards the Israeli interior, specifically the public of the ruling right in an attempt to restore the image and restore confidence after the occupation was forced to close Al-Aqsa in front of the incursions for a period of 19 days, and failed to impose the storming of Ramadan 28 in front of the Almoravids despite the exhaustion of all attempts, and was forced to close it in The biblical "Feast of Weeks" is under fire, which are all developments that have not occurred since the opening of the daily raids in mid-2003.
The researcher summarized the researcher Abhais that what happened today in the Al-Aqsa Mosque is the attempt by extremist temple groups to console themselves, considering the resumption of the incursions a victory, and this in itself is an implicit admission that the resistance has already imposed itself as part of the Jerusalem equation despite the passage of 54 years since its occupation, and four years have passed since Donald Trump's decision.
