Dozens of settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque complex
Since 2003, Israel has allowed settlers into compound almost on daily basis
Dozens of Israeli settlers forced their way into Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Thursday, an authority said.
The Islamic Endowments Authority in Jerusalem said in a brief statement that "185 settlers stormed the mosque this morning."
Among the intruders was a former Israeli member of the Knesset, Rabbi Yehudah Glick.
It is expected that a number of other settlers will storm the mosque after the noon prayer.
Since 2003, Israel has allowed settlers into the compound almost on a daily basis.
