Islamic Movement: Israel responsible for any harm inflicted on Aqsa
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM — The Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands on Sunday held the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) fully responsible for any harm inflicted upon the Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinian worshipers inside it after the abortive sneaking attempt by an armed Israeli settler who was believed to have intentions to commit mass killing in the Mosque.
In a press statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC), spokesman for the Movement Zahi Nujidat stressed that the Palestinian worshipers and the Aqsa Mosque would remain in danger as long as there is occupation in Jerusalem.
For its part, the Aqsa foundation for heritage and endowment warned of attempts by Jewish religious groups to target the Aqsa Mosque and Palestinian worshipers inside it after the attempt of an armed settler to infiltrate into the Mosque at dawn Sunday.
The foundation added that the recent Israeli break-ins and the atmosphere of incitement against the Aqsa Mosque may end up with a massacre against Palestinian worshipers, noting that a report published two days ago by an Israeli newspaper did not rule out the possibility of committing a massacre against the Palestinians in the Mosque.
