PA daily describes visits of Jews to the Temple Mount as an “invasion” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, describes visits as “provocative” tours with explanations about “the alleged Temple”

Headline: “Over 160 settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
      “Over 160 settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque from the direction of the Mughrabi Gate with reinforced protection from the occupation forces yesterday [April 19, 2018]. The settlers wore traditional Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) clothing and held provocative tours at the mosque while listening to explanations about ‘the alleged Temple.’”

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.
