The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas rejected and strongly condemned the holding of biblical lessons by extremist Jewish settlers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
“We vehemently reject and condemn holding biblical lessons by hardline settlers near Bab al-Rahma prayer hall at Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Hamas said in a statement.
“This comes in the context of the plans orchestrated by the Israeli occupation to enforce the spatial and temporal division,” Hamas added, stating that “this is part of the Israeli plan to change the Islamic character and identity of Al-Haram al-Sharif.”
Hamas called for the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) “to assume their responsibility and work towards protecting the occupied Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque against Judaization and desecration.”
