GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas has strongly condemned Israeli drilling operations on the historical Umayyad palaces running along the Aqsa Mosque as a ”blatant infringement on the Palestinian, Arab and Muslim people, and on the history and civilization of Jerusalem.”

According to reports, Israel has been increasing construction of a network of bridges and iron stairs in the historical area to transfer it to facilities of the alleged second temple.

”We emphasize that the acceleration of implementation of Judaization plans will not change the reality of Jerusalem, an Arab Islamic capital,” Hamas said in a statement on Saturday. ”Our people will continue to hold fast to their rights and stay firm on their land. And the Aqsa Mosque will remain a beacon not only for the Palestinians, but also for the Arab and Muslim people as a whole.”

The Hamas statement calls on the Palestinians, its forces, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the Arab League, and human rights organizations to take urgent action to protect Jerusalem’s historical Islamic landmarks and address Israel’s crimes against the Aqsa Mosque.
