Palestinian Officials Warn of Dire Consequences of Intrusions into Al-Aqsa

Jerusalem24 – Palestine’s Chief Justice, Adviser to the President for Religious Affairs and Islamic Relations, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, warned against the Israeli occupation’s attempts to implement plans to storm the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the month of Ramadan, and the consequences on the security and stability of the region and the world, stressing that all settlers’ incursions into the Al-Haram Al-Sharif are rejected.

Speaking to the official Voice of Palestine radio, Al-Habbash said, in response to Israeli “Minister of Internal Security” about allowing the Jews to storm the Temple Mount during the holy month of Ramadan, “We do not expect the occupying state to escalate and make matters in the square of tension.” He added that the leaders of the occupation know perfectly well that the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most sensitive in Palestinian geography, and therefore they deliberately create crises from time to time.

The judge affirmed that the Islamic endowments in the city of Jerusalem are the only ones that have the right to allow or prevent anyone from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque, and they have the legal authority to manage and supervise the Holy Mosque, adding that the occupying state, since the occupation of the holy city, has been trying to change The status quo in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

With the advent of Ramadan, which starts early next month, and as thousands of Muslims are expected to be present at Al-Aqsa Mosque during all hours for worship, Sheikh Hussein warned that allowing Israeli settlers to continue to be present at the Muslim holy site during this month could provoke trouble, expressing concern that it may be a prelude to the “malicious intentions” of the Israeli occupation authorities.
