PA daily: Jews “invaded” the Temple Mount, heard explanations about the “alleged Temple”

Headline: "More than 50 settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque"
"Fifty-four settlers invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday [Nov. 22, 2018] from the Mughrabi Gate, under increased protection by the Israeli occupation forces. The settlers wandered around the mosque and listened to explanations regarding the alleged Temple before leaving the mosque through the Chain Gate."

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. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
