A Palestinian foundation has condemned Israel’s holding of a concert to celebrate the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah in the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque — one of the holiest sites in Islam — in al-Quds [Jerusalem].

Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage on Thursday slammed the event, held at a venue within the courtyard, as “the violation of Al-Aqsa Mosque’s sanctity,” news website worldbulletin.net reported.

The foundation called on the Muslim world “to step up and stop attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and al-Quds [Jerusalem].”

Last week, Israeli authorities were forced to call off a wine festival, planned to be held in the courtyard of the former Great Mosque in the city of Beersheba in the Occupied Territories, in the face of strong opposition and protests by Muslims. The mosque was built in 1906 during the Ottoman Era.
