Right-wing settlers absent as Palestinians brace for Al-Aqsa invasion

Hundreds of Palestinians congregated at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in an effort to stave off an anticipated invasion of the area by right-wing Israeli religious groups Thursday afternoon.

The messianic Jewish movement Chabad called on its followers to go to Al-Aqsa to “conquer and Judaize the holiest place on earth, which is being desecrated in such a disgraceful and shameful way.” Several religious groups organized a march to the holy compound scheduled for Thursday. None of the groups, however, showed up at the mosque for their scheduled march.

Access to the compound, which houses the Al-Aqsa mosque, was restricted to Muslims with Israeli IDs, aged at least 50 for men and of any age for women.
