AMMAN — Israeli settlers have begun to blow trumpets (Shofar) when storming Masjid Al-Aqsa. اضافة اعلان

Raze Obeidat, a Jerusalemite writer and political analyst, said to Palm Strategic Initiatives Center that these trumpets have a symbolic Talmudic and biblical origin and are meant to commemorate a change of the times. The trumpets are also symbolic of the founding of a new temple.

Other settlers also performed dances and Talmudic rituals
