Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Chairman of the Supreme Muslim Council in occupied Jerusalem Sheikh Ekrima Sabri has said that the Islamic Waqf Department began to lose control over al-Aqsa Mosque Compound.

In a press statement on Monday, the preacher of al-Aqsa Sabri warned about the gravity of the situation in the Muslim holy compound, calling upon the Arab countries to shoulder responsibilities for the protection of the mosque.

He pointed out that the Israeli occupation was considering a plan to turn the Bab al-Rahma area into a synagogue, indicating that re-opening the area has prevented doing so.

Sheikh Sabri explained that the reason for deporting him along with dozens of others from the holy compound was insisting on keeping the Bab al-Rahma area opened to Muslims.

He stressed that it’s the duty of the Islamic Waqf Department to exercise its right and prevent the Israeli forces from crossing the line, adding that the Israeli procedures at al-Aqsa Mosque constitute a blatant aggression.

The Israeli occupation believes, he noted, that the conditions for enforcing its schemes targeting al-Aqsa Mosque Compound are favorable, particularly under the wave of normalizing ties by certain Arab countries with the occupation state.

In recent days, Israeli settlers have intensified the storming of the eastern part of al-Aqsa, adjacent to Bab al-Rahma area, increased the performance of Talmudic rituals there, and at the same time prevented the presence of Jerusalemites in the area.

It is worth mentioning that Al- Aqsa mosque exposes on a daily basis to the storming of the Israeli settlers, at which they perform Talmudic rituals and desecrate the sanctity of the mosque. 


Israel seeks through its storming to al -Aqsa to devote the temporal and spatial division of the mosque and to Judaize the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
