Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) prevented Sheikh Ismail Hawahdeh, preacher of the Aqsa Mosque, from entering Jerusalem for the third consecutive week.

Lawyer Khaldoun Najem, who works for the Islamic Awqaf Authority in Jerusalem, said he submitted a letter of protest to the Israeli intelligence service, Shin Bet, asking for allowing Sheikh Nawahdeh to do his job at the Aqsa Mosque.

Lawyer Najem affirmed that he would go to Israeli courts if he did not receive a response from the Israeli intelligence.

Sheikh Nawahdeh is the only Aqsa Mosque preacher from the West Bank.
