Islamic movement calls for uprising against occupation violations in Jerusalem

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Sheikh Kamal Khatib, deputy head of the Islamic movement in the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948, considered Israeli raids into al-Aqsa Mosque and desecration of its courtyards, especially wall and Square of al-Buraq, a flagrant aggression on Islamic sanctities.

Sheikh Khatib warned of the occupation schemes designed to divide al-Aqsa Mosque and its courtyards, referring to some of the Israeli Judaizing projects and plans in al-Aqsa Mosque.

He said in a press statement published by Filastin newspaper on Monday: “We warned Muslims in the past and we are still warning them of the occupation schemes and their consequences affecting Muslims’ feelings and their religious places.”

“These attacks, although coinciding with Jewish holidays, are not new”, added deputy head of the Islamic movement, noting that the daily abuses by settlers and military and police units aim to desecrate al-Aqsa Mosque and impose dividing it between Muslims and Jews.

Sheikh Khatib demanded the Arab and Islamic nation to launch a mass uprising worldwide, to stop the Israeli occupation schemes and halt its attacks and practices which desecrate al-Aqsa Mosque.

For his part, the researcher at Jerusalem Affairs Professor Saleh Lutfi, said that these ongoing attacks and raids in Al-Aqsa Mosque, intensified during Jewish holidays, represent “systematic” and planned practices by the Zionist supreme institutions, which seek to Judaize the mosque.

Lutfi told Filastin newspaper that all economic projects approved by Jerusalem Municipality and judicial decisions supporting Jewish infiltration in the Holy City aim to turn al-Aqsa Mosque and its courtyards to public squares for Jews and to “geographically and religiously” divide it.

He also pointed to displacing the city’s residents and to imposing a curfew on them during the Jewish holidays.

He called for harnessing all efforts and capabilities to support the steadfastness of Jerusalemites and protect Jerusalem from Israeli plots.

Israeli occupation has been intensifying its military presence in the occupied city of Jerusalem and around al-Aqsa Mosque, especially in the area of al-Buraq. It is also continuing its procedure preventing people under 45 years from entering al-Aqsa Mosque, for the second day in a row.

Meanwhile, 73 settlers broke into al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday (62 settlers in the morning and 11 others in the afternoon), and tried surreptitiously to perform some Talmudic rituals there.
