Hamas urges Muslim world to help liberate Al-Aqsa

Tehran, Sept 14, IRNA – Palestinian resistance movement Hamas called on Muslim and Arab countries to help liberate l-Aqsa Mosque.

Speaking in a gathering in Gaza titled Support for Al-Aqsa, Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri reiterated the willingness of the resistance movement’s members for martyrdom in defending the mosque against the occupiers.
He condemned the Israeli regime’s Sunday raid on the holy site and the Palestinian worshipers inside it and said Muslims should not remain silent over the crimes of the Zionist regime.
He also condemned the occupiers’ attempts to change the identity of al-Aqsa Mosque, IRIB News reported.
Al-Misri further urged the Palestinian Authority to sever its interactions with the Zionist regime.
Palestinian people on Sunday took to the streets of al-Quds and other Paletsinian cities to condemn Israel’s latest assault on the al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinian resistance groups in a joint statement called for more protests on Friday in condemnation of the attack.
Earlier in the day, Israeli forces stormed the holy site and clashed with the Palestinians inside.
According to Palestinian witnesses, Israeli forces entered the mosque and caused damage.
The clashes broke out hours before Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year. The Israeli regime usually imposes restrictions on Muslim worshipers' access to the al-Aqsa Mosque on the first days of Rosh Hashanah.
Palestinians say the Israeli regime is planning to change the status quo of al-Quds and Judaize the city.
The al-Aqsa Mosque compound, located in the Israeli-occupied Old City of al-Quds, is a flashpoint holy Islamic site. The location of the compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, is the holiest site in Judaism. The mosque is Islam’s third holiest site after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
