The head of the Islamic Supreme Authority in Jerusalem and the preacher of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Ikrimah Sabri, warned of the seriousness of the recent request of the extremist Jewish groups. They asked to build a Talmudic school in the eastern square of Al-Aqsa to gain a foothold in it after they failed to control and convert the al-Rahma Gate to a synagogue.

Sheikh Sabri warned that the occupation is trying to take away the powers of the endowments in Al-Aqsa and gradually take control of the Holy City. He explained that denying Palestinians access to Jerusalem confirms Israel’s intention to isolate the city and besiege it with military checkpoints, the separation wall, and settlements.

Sabri pointed out that the temporal and spatial division policy that the occupation is trying to impose began decades ago but Jerusalemites and the Palestinians in 1948 Occupied Palestine responded to that scheme and prevented the imposition of the occupation hegemony on Jerusalem.

Calls continue for all Muslims in 1948 Occupied Palestine and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to intensify their presence at Al-Aqsa Mosque to repel the Jewish settlers’ incursions.
