The police evacuated hundreds of worshipers who had stayed at Al-Aqsa Mosque during the night (Sunday), for fear of disturbances in the morning.

According to the police, after the end of Ramadan prayers on the Temple Mount and its closing, hundreds of people barricaded themselves in the place, in complete contradiction to the agreement with the Waqf people for Ramadan and the rules of the place.

The police added that as part of the preliminary preparations for the month of Ramadan, mosques outside the Temple Mount area were prepared for overnight stays.

According to the police, following information received about the intention of some of them to violate public order in the morning hours before the start of visits to the Temple Mount, in accordance with the practice that has existed for many years, prolonged negotiation efforts were made with the Waqf in an attempt to remove those who were there.

According to her, most of the residents did not obey the instructions and refused to leave the place, so the police had to enter the Temple Mount to get them out.

The police emphasized that there were no unusual events when the worshipers were removed from the place and that the sanctity of the place was preserved.

"The Israel Police will continue to allow freedom of worship, but will act to prevent any intention or attempt to violate the order and damage the existing practice in the holy places," it was stated.

In Palestinian media, however, the evacuation of the worshipers was described as an "assault" by the security forces.
