JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Dozens of Israeli rightists broke into al-Aqsa Mosque compound through the Old City’s Moroccan Gate Wednesday morning heavily escorted with Israeli police officers, Palestinian officials said.

Officials in the Palestinian ministry of endowments told Ma’an that more than 60 settlers entered the compound in groups and toured its squares.

Members of the Jewish Ames family along with several Zionist organizations on Tuesday urged ultra-Orthodox Jews to commemorate the third anniversary of the shooting deaths of Yitzhak and Tali Ames inside al-Aqsa compound.

The couple, from Beit Haggi settlement in the Hebron area, were killed in a shooting near Kiryat Arba in 2010 by Hamas-affiliated militants. Two others from Kiryat Arbaa were also killed in the attack.
