An order issued by Israel Police yesterday calling restrictions on the president of the Supreme Islamic Council Sheikh Ekrima Sabri in Jerusalem from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque for four months.
In a statement, Sabri stressed that the occupation forces went angry and attacked his house and strictly asked him not to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque for a period of four months. He further condemning this act revealed that this is undoubtedly a conspiracy of Israel and part of its illegal policy which has been made to make Muslim holy site target and contradicts Tel Aviv’s claim that it is a democratic state, adding that he would stay with Al-Aqsa and would defend Al-Aqsa.
Sheikh Sabri who is around 81-year old was blamed and accused of incitement on his positions aimed at maintaining the Islamic identity of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
However, Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the response of the restrictions also expressed criticism and told that Israel is violating the Muslims’ right in the freedom of worship.
It further revealed in a statement that every occupation authority’s measures from Israel are considered illegal and violating against Jerusalem and the holy places, adding that such measures unveil the falseness of the Israeli claims that it respects the Muslims’ freedom of worship.
