JERUSALEM, March 6, 2013 (WAFA) – Muslim worshippers Wednesday confronted Jewish fanatics who tried to perform religious rituals in al-Aqsa Mosque, one of Islam’s holiest sites in Jerusalem, according to witnesses.
They said students studying the Quran in the yards of al-Aqsa Mosque confronted the fanatics who attempted to hold Jewish rituals in the Muslim holy place.
Police intervened to prevent an outbreak of a fight and in the process pushed one 48-Palestinian man who fell and injured himself.
Police removed the fanatics from the area to calm down the situation and closed it for tourism.
Muslims fear that the fanatics aim to eventually take over the site to destroy the Muslim places and replace them with a Jewish temple.
