Israel bars Islamic Waqf guard from entering al-Aqsa Mosque for 6 months

 

JERUSALEM, Tuesday, May 26, 2020 (WAFA) - Israeli police banned today Aqsa Mosque guard Hamza Nimr from entering al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem for six months, according to local sources.

Israeli authorities summoned Nimr for interrogation and handed him an order banning him from entering the mosque after he opposed the entry of an Israeli police officer into Dome of the Rock, the golden dome mosque within al-Haram al-Sharif (the noble sanctuary) compound that also includes Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Jordan is in charge of Al Aqsa Mosque compound and Jerusalem Waqf and its staff are considered Jordanian government employees.
