Foundation: Israeli forces raid Al-Aqsa Mosque

Feb. 25, 2013 1:49 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2013 5:46 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Around 40 Jewish worshipers accompanied by Israeli forces entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem on Monday, the Al-Aqsa Foundation said.

Israeli forces evacuated Muslim worshipers as the group performed Jewish prayers in the compound, and one Palestinian was assaulted with a stun gun, the foundation said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces banned Palestinians aged under 45 from entering the mosque for the second day in a row, the foundation said, adding that dozens of students who study Sharia at the compound gathered by the main gates to protest the ban.

An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
