OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Noted Palestinian figures from occupied Jerusalem and the 1948 occupied lands on Monday warned the Israeli occupation state of its declared intent to demolish what remained of the historical Maghariba Gate and build a bridge in its place.

This came during a news conference held Monday morning in the holy city by the authority of endowments and Islamic holy sites in occupied Jerusalem along with the follow-up committee in the 1948 occupied lands.

Prominent figures including grand mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine Sheikh Mohamed Hussein, preacher of the Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Ikrima Sabri and head of the follow-up committee for the Arabs Mohamed Zeidan participated in the news conference.

The participants gave speeches before a final joint statement was read condemning Israel’s moves to Judaize the Arab identity of the holy city and the Aqsa Mosque.

“The occupation municipality in Jerusalem persists in imposing its policies on the ground to entrench its settlement activities, and the Judaization of the old city and the vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque,” the statement read.

The statement stressed that the Israeli occupation would not dare to demolish the Aqsa Mosque unless it lost what is left of its sanity because its demolition means an all-out war threatening Israel’s existence.

The statement also underlined that every grain of the Aqsa Mosque and its vicinity, including the Maghariba Gate, belongs only to Muslims and warned of any malicious intents to demolish any part of it.
