Israeli Settlers Prepare to Invade Al-Aqsa Mosque in Ramadan Citing Jewish Holidays as Pretext

Af.M | DOP -

The Union of Temple Mount Groups called Tuesday, 21 March 2023 the Israeli settlers to invade Al-Aqsa Mosque during the first day of Ramadan citing the so-called Jewish Purim holiday as a pretext.

Israeli settlers intend to perform provocative Talmudic rituals, read biblical passages aloud and collectively, and conduct evocative dances in Al-Aqsa Mosque yards.

In response, Palestinian activists and officials called on the Palestinian people to intensify their presence at Al-Aqsa Mosque on the coming Tuesday and Wednesday to confront settlers’ widespread incursions.

Last February, more than 3,587 colonial Israeli settlers invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque, performed provocative Talmudic rituals in its yards, and conducted the so-called “epic prostration” at its gates.

Temple Mount Groups are mobilizing their colonial settler to carry out large-scale incursions into the Al-Aqsa mosque during the so-called Jewish Passover which coincides with the third week of the holy month of Ramadan between 6-12 April.

Right-wing colonial settlers repeatedly raid the Muslim holy sites in occupied Jerusalem basically Al-Aqsa Mosque, using Jewish holidays as an excuse.

As part of a decades-old accord between Jordan and the Israeli occupation, non-Muslims are not allowed to perform any religious rituals inside the confines of Al-Aqsa Mosque, nor are Israeli symbols allowed to be displayed.
