Dozens of Jewish settlers on Tuesday desecrated the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Tuesday morning.
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Dozens of Jewish settlers on Tuesday desecrated the Aqsa Mosque in Occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Tuesday morning.
According to local sources, at least 80 settlers entered the Mosque through al-Maghariba Gate and toured its courtyards under police escort.
The Aqsa Mosque is exposed to daily desecration by Jewish settlers and police forces in the morning and the afternoon except on Fridays and Saturdays.
In a related context, Sheikh Mohamed Hussein, Grand Mufti of al-Quds and Palestine, has warned of an Israeli plan to change the Islamic landscape of the Old City of Jerusalem.
In a statement, Sheikh Hussein explained that the Israeli occupation authority started recently to make major renovations at a Jewish synagogue, which is located 250 meter to the west of the Aqsa Mosque in ash-Sharaf neighborhood in the Old City, in a serious attempt to hide the Aqsa Mosque landmarks and change the Islamic landscape of the holy city.
“The Aqsa Mosque and al-Quds' (Jerusalem) streets and neighborhood are seeing an unstoppable Israeli attack and growing Judaization attempts to impose full control over the city, block the view of the Aqsa Mosque and encircle it with new landmarks of Jewish character,” he said.
