Israel seeks al-Aqsa Mosque demolition: PA official

Al Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem , Occupied Palestine beautiful

Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash says Israel plans to demolish the al-Aqsa Mosque in al-Quds (Jerusalem).

“Israel is following a systematic, gradual plan supported by the Israeli government and protected by the Israeli army and its aim- I’m telling you is not to divide al-Aqsa – its aim is to remove the al-Aqsa Mosque,” al-Habbash said in an interview.

In recent months, Israeli forces and extremist settlers have stepped up their attacks on Palestinians visiting the mosque. This has led to violent confrontations between the two sides.

Israel has also imposed severe restrictions to prevent Muslim worshippers from entering the mosque.
