IOA imposes restrictions on entry to Aqsa

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem on Monday.

The IOA imposed a state of alert in the holy city on the eve of the Jewish Passover and deployed thousands of policemen and imposed strict security measures in the Old City and in the vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque.

Local sources said that men less than 50 years old were not allowed access to the holy site along with foreign visitors.

Meanwhile, the grand daughter of Amin Al-Husseini, the former and late Mufti of Jerusalem, has refuted an Israeli family claim that the Shepherd hotel in occupied Jerusalem was their property.

She said in a press release on Sunday that the estate was of the sole ownership of her grand father, who died in his exile in Lebanon in 1974 after the British mandate authority of Palestine banished him back in 1937.

She said that the project of establishing a settlement unit in place of the Mufti’s property would not only destroy a Palestinian historical heritage but would also bisect Arab suburbs.
