The "Storming" Bride

It appears in the Arab media and the story at Daily48 (notice the date: the 'occupation' began not in 1967) is that

Sheikh Sabri denounces Jewish bride celebration in the Al-Aqsa Mosque
22 Dec, 2016

The head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, denounced on Thursday, a Jewish bride's celebration inside the al-Aqsa mosque under the protection of the occupying forces.

In an interview with the site "Daily 48" Sheikh Sabri said: "This alleged action is to exceed what is observed in the visits, and this confirms that the Jews who violate the sanctity of Al-Aqsa Mosque."
He added: "What we observe in these days is that the Jewish intruders slander the Al-Aqsa Mosque daily."

He expressed his strong condemnation of the storming by the Jewish bride and her wedding blessers into the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Stressing that the Al-Aqsa is for Muslims alone and it has , no relation to the Jews.

By the way, I know the parents, seen at left, to the bride's right.

UPDATE

I have now learned that the black shawl was forced upon the bride, who had her own veil, so as to lessen the fashion impression and have her present an Islamist fashion look but that nevertheless, she seems to have been the first kallah to have ascended in her wedding dress.
