The Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs in Gaza warns against provoking Muslims by storming al-Aqsa
The Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs in Gaza, Ismail Radwan, denounced the storming of al-Aqsa mosque by a large number of Israeli settlers on Monday from the Mughrabi Gate, accompanied by Israeli special police units.
Radwan said in a written statement that the attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque came within the Israeli Judaization policy in Jerusalem as a prelude to the division of al-Aqsa mosque between Jewish and Muslims.
He added that “storming al-Aqsa mosque is a direct provocation to the Arab and Islamic nation and the Palestinian people and it is a clear attack on the holy sites and freedom of belief and religion,” warning the occupation of “the consequences of continuing this aggression and provocation of the Islamic nation”, holding the occupation responsible for desecrating al-Aqsa mosque.
Radwan called on the Palestinian people to defend Al-Aqsa Mosque, also called on the Arab and Islamic nations, the Arab Spring countries, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and international human rights organizations to stop the ongoing aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinian people.
