Right-wing Israelis tour Al-Aqsa Mosque compound

Around 60 right-wing Israelis raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound through the Moroccan Gate early Tuesday, witnesses said.

Israeli security officers escorted groups of Israeli extremists who toured the compound before leaving through the Chain Gate.

Worshipers who were performing prayers at the time chanted Allah Akbar in protest at the visit. 

Meanwhile, Israeli police detained five Palestinians putting up Palestinian flags on Salah Addin street, a Ma'an reporter said. 

The flag-raising was in response to Israelis putting up Israeli flags across Jerusalem for Israeli Independence Day.
