Scores of Israelis enter Al-Aqsa compound

Sept. 29, 2010 12:39 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 30, 2010 10:04 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Scores of Israeli settlers entered and toured the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem's Old City on Wednesday, as Jews marked the end of the religious holiday of Sukkot.

A guard at the mosque compound told Ma'an that approximately 95 Israelis entered the holy site, escorted by Israeli forces, and toured the compound's courtyard.

On Tuesday, Tareq Abu Subieh, a guard at the mosque compound, was detained for attempting to prevent 75 settlers from entering the site, where many Jews believe the First and Second Temple were located.

Abu Subieh said he received a restriction order barring him from entering the compound for two weeks.

A spokesman for Israel's National Police did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
