Foreign Ministry warns of dangers facing Al-Aqsa under Netanyahu-Ben Gvir government

RAMALLAH, Sunday, November 27, 2022 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates warned today of the dangers surrounding the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem under the upcoming Netanyahu-Ben Gvir Israeli government coalition, including allowing more mass incursions into the holy site by extremist Israeli settlers.

It said these dangers are particularly serious in light of the agreements signed between Netanyahu and Ben Gvir, which grant the latter massive powers to practice his racist policies and agenda, including conducting widespread and radical changes to the existing historical and legal status quo at the holy site.

“Making any changes to the status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque is a direct threat that will blow up the conflict across the entire region,” said the Ministry in a statement.

The ministry urged the Arab and Islamic countries to act immediately to coordinate their efforts and agree on a program of action at the political, diplomatic and legal fronts, to provide the necessary international protection for Jerusalem and its sanctities, and to implement the relevant Arab and Islamic resolutions to enhance the steadfastness of the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem.  

Earlier today, scores of Israeli settler fanatics guarded by police broke into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem.

The Jordan-run Islamic Waqf Department, in charge of the holy site, said scores of Israeli settlers entered the compound through the Moroccan Gate in groups and performed rituals and Talmudic prayers there under the protection of Israeli police officers.
