Days of Palestine - Jerusalem
Extremist settlers groups have announced intents to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem on Ramadan 28 (May 10) in coordination with the Israeli police.
However, Palestinian media outlets quoted an Islamic Awqaf official in Jerusalem as saying that the Awqaf Administration in the holy city was informed that the Aqsa Mosque’s Bab al-Maghariba would be closed to Jewish settlers as of Tuesday and until further notice.
Jerusalemite figures, for their part, warned against Jewish groups’ intent to desecrate the Mosque on Ramadan 28 and called for not trusting the Israeli decision to prevent the settlers from entering the Islamic holy site on that day.
Settler groups had already affirmed their intent to march en masse to the Aqsa Mosque on May 10 to mark what they call “Jerusalem Day,” the day when Israel occupied the holy city in 1967.
