Gaza, ALRAY - Jerusalem Committee Rapporteur at Palestinian Parliament Ahmed abu Halbeyyah called the Arab countries to firmly counter Israel’s attempts to claim sovereignty over Al Aqsa Mosque.
Abu Halbeyyah explained to ALRAY that the Israeli occupation tries to legalize the division of Al Aqsa mosque and to establish civil Jewish facilities to officially enable the Jewsih settlers and soldiers to break into it.
The occupation plans to make Al Aqsa mosque and the surrounding so-called Holy Basin pure Jewish property, ignoring the Jordanian guardianship over the holy site.
Israeli Knesset on Monday said it’s scheduled to hold a discussion on Israeli sovereignty over the Al Aqsa Mosque Temple Mount on Tuesday, after it was dropped earlier this month due to widespread rage against the decision among Palestinians after Friday prayer.
Jordanian lawmakers were angered at Israeli plans to draft a law ending the Hashemite guardianship on Muslim and Christian holy places in Jerusalem, which is a breach of the Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty, official news agency Petra reported.
The Knesset's proposal aims to legitimize recurring breakings into Al-Aqsa Mosque and other Muslim and Christian sanctities in Jerusalem and Palestine, The Lower House of Parliament's Palestine Committee said on Feb. 16.
