Palestinian worshippers in the holy Aqsa Mosque on Wednesday confronted a group of 20 Jewish fanatic settlers who stormed the holy site escorted by Israeli security men.

Local sources in the city said that the worshippers did not allow the settlers to roam the holy site forcing the security men to evacuate them.

Worshippers described the attempt occurring on the day when Muslims flock to the holy site to observe Lailat El-Qadr or the night of revelation in the holy month of Ramadan as a "blatant challenge to Muslim feeling".

They said that the Israeli occupation authority and the fanatic settlers wished to affirm their "malicious" intent to target the holy site.
