ALRAY - The Israeli repressive measures in the occupied Jerusalem indicated that Israel started virtually to divide the time of worship at al-Aqsa mosque between Muslims and Jews, the member of the Executive committee in the PLO and Head of the Jerusalem Affairs Ahmed Qurei’ said.
“Amid the silence of the Arab and Islamic nations towards the continuous Israeli violations, Al-Aqsa mosque is in a real danger as the holy city is subjected to judaization by the Israeli occupation,” Qurei added.
He explained that the Israeli military has been preventing worshipers from entering al-Aqsa mosque for the second day in a row and closing its gates and entrances to pave the way for settlers’ attacks. Such actions prevail a state of tension in Jerusalem.
In recent months, groups of extremist Jewish settlers, often accompanied by Israeli security forces, have repeatedly forced their way into the Al-Aqsa complex. The frequent violations anger Palestinian Muslims and occasionally lead to violent confrontations.
