Ma’an News via EOZ  The 104 Israeli Jews were described by witnesses as ‘settlers,’ and they included 33 Israeli intelligence officers led by extremist lawyer Yehuda Glick.  Glick was allowed back in Al-Aqsa compound after his 6-month ban was lifted two days ago. He was informed that he would be allowed to return to the compound by Jerusalem District Police Chief Yossi Pariente after serving only one month of his ban.  Glick called on all Jews to visit the compound, and proposed an initiative to schedule daily visits by extremists to the Jerusalem holy site. 

Azzam al-Khatib, director of the Jerusalem office of the PA ministry of endowment said “it is obvious that Israeli police are being pressured by extremists to allow Glick to return to Al-Aqsa.”  “Glick is a provocative man, and it is obvious that he is trying to create chaos at Al-Aqsa,” al-Khatib added.

Yehuda Glick is an American-born Israeli and the chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Fund, an extremist Jewish organization focused on “strengthening the relationship between Israel and the Temple Mount.”
