The increasing break-ins by Israeli settler gangs at al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—is a serious escalation, the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine said on Sunday.
“The crimes committed by the terrorist Israeli government against Occupied Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque cannot be tolerated”, the Islamic Jihad said in a statement. “The escalating aggressions at al-Aqsa will trigger unabated tensions.”
The group called for an urgent action in response to the Israeli violations and break-ins at such holy Islamic sites.
The Islamic Jihad added that one of the aims of the Great March of Return staged at the Gaza border is to speak up for al-Aqsa Mosque, saying: “Israelis and colonizers do not have the right to grab hold of al-Aqsa. The break-ins amount to an act of terror over which we cannot, should not keep silent.”
