Maan News Agency | Sept 18, 2011

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Religious and right-wing Israelis entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Sunday, the Al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage said.

Israeli police looked on as around 18 religious and far-right Israelis entered in the morning and another 40 entered in the afternoon, the foundation said in a statement.

The Al-Aqsa compound, containing the mosque and the Dome of the Rock, is the third holiest site in Islam and abuts the site where Jews believe the ancient Second Temple stood.
