According to international media, more than 500 Israeli settlers entered forcibly into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex through active help of Israeli Police on Sunday. According to a statement of the Islamic Endowment Department in Jerusalem, the settlers broke into the complex through its Israeli-controlled Al-Mughrabi Gate, and performed their rituals inside. According to reports, the settlers attempted to storm the complex through the Bab Huta Gate and King Faisal Gate but were confronted by Palestinian worshippers, while Israeli Police forcefully entered into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex fired tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets to push the Palestinians out of the Complex and clear the way for Jewish Settlers who wanted to visit the so-called Mount Temple. As reported, the Israeli Jews claim that there were two Jewish temples at the place of Al-Aqsa mosques during ancient times. Whereas, Israeli Police portrayed that Palestinian youth threw stones on Israeli Police at Mount Temple and it reacted in its safety.
The Palestinian Authority denounced the settlers incursion in to the Al-Aqsa mosque complex and termed it as dangerous Israeli escalation. PA Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said that Israeli government is tampering with the security and stability of the region and pushing the region into a religious war. The heinous Israeli act was also condemned by the Jordanian Spokesman while saying that Al-Aqsa mosque complex is a purely Muslim warship site and a Jordanian run Islamic Waqf Department is the exclusive body to oversee the site. While the Palestinian armed groups Hamas, who governs Gaza had said to Palestinians to make their way to Al-Aqsa mosque and remained there till Eid al-Adha prayers on Eid day.
In fact, Israeli government is making such planned incursions repeatedly so the Muslims of the world who react furiously on this issue became used to with Israeli practices. Israeli government resorted to violence just after weeks of ceasefire with Palestinians through a thoughtful incursion ahead of Eid al-Adha. There is need of coordinated and decisive efforts against Israeli regime at international level to end its nefarious actions against the Palestinian Muslims and their religious Holi sites situated in Israeli occupied territory. Certainly, the powerful and influential Muslim Countries like KSA, Turkey, Pakistan and Egypt must play their part because helpless Palestinians have no say at international level.
