Israeli minister performs provocative tour of alAqsa

Jerusalem, Israeli Minister of Agriculture, Uri Ariel, headed a group of extremist Israeli settlers on Sunday in a provocative tour of the holy AlAqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem.

Ariel and dozens of settlers toured the Islamic holy compound in groups, only hours after Israeli police forcibly evicted hundreds of Muslim worshippers from the holy site.

Similar tours by Israeli politicians and lawmakers in the past led to tensions and clashes between Israeli forces on the one side, and Muslim worshipers and the Jordanrun Islamic Waqf personnel in charge of running the compound on the other side.
