Arab normalization with Israel encourages it to storm Al-Aqsa: Hamas

Middle East Monitor  /  September 26, 2023

Arab normalization with the Israeli occupation is allowing and encouraging it to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque continuously, the head of Hamas abroad said yesterday.

Khaled Meshaal said in press remarks that during Jewish holidays the occupation seeks to impose new realities in preparation for the demolition of Al-Aqsa and the construction of the alleged temple.

He added that since 2017 the number of settlers storming Al-Aqsa has doubled and the occupation has increased its aggression against the Muslim holy site.

Meshaal added that the resistance in the occupied West Bank has become too large to be contained by the extremist policies of the occupation government. It, he continued, will provide the greatest response to the occupation’s crimes.

He called on all the Palestinian people who can reach Al-Aqsa Mosque to go there.

Arab states, he continued, must stop normalizing ties with the occupation as this poses a danger to Palestine and its people.

Sheikh Raed Salah, head of Islamic Movement in Israel, yesterday called for saving Al-Aqsa Mosque from the continuous Israeli aggression, Safa news agency reported.

He called for Palestinians to visit it, pray and stay in it to defend it from the Israeli forces and settler violations.

This came in a speech he delivered to mark the birthday of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).

“Every single stone in Al-Aqsa Mosque longs to Prophet Mohamad (peace be upon him),” Sheikh Salah said, urging Muslims to follow the footsteps of the prophet who led a prayer at the mosque.

He also said that “every inch in Al-Aqsa Mosque is suffering from the Israeli occupation,” pointing out that male and female worshippers are being beaten and forced out of the blessed mosque.

Sheikh Salah called for all Muslims and free people around the world to stand up for Al-Aqsa Mosque and stop Zionist forces and settlers from desecrating it.
