Abu Shaar warns of storming the Aqsa
Dr. Taleb Abu Shaar, the minister of Awkaf and religious affairs in Gaza, has asked the Arab and Islamic countries to defend and protect the holy Aqsa Mosque.
Abu Shaar, in a statement on Saturday, said that media sources were affirming that the Israeli occupation forces and Jewish fanatic groups were planning to storm the Aqsa on Sunday on the occasion of what they call "Rambam ascent to the temple mount".
He appealed to the world community to stand alongside the Palestinians in face of the Israeli occupation authority’s (IOA) desecration of their holy places and not to remain silent towards the IOA crimes in occupied Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque.
The minister appreciated the heroic role of the Jerusalemite youth in confronting those fanatic groups, noting that the IOA was persisting in its effort to judaize occupied Jerusalem and control the holy Mosque.
