Palestinians Reject Israel Security Measures in Al Aqsa Masjid

 

Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News – 17-07-2017

The Director of al-Aqsa masjid says the addition of new security measures at the Al Aqsa compound is illegitimate and unacceptable.

Al-Aqsa masjid officials have rejected the new security measures put in place by Israel as it reopened the holy site following a deadly gun battle that prompted a two-day closure.

Muslim religious authorities, who administer the compound, are refusing to pray there on Sunday after Israeli authorities installed metal detectors and additional close-circuit television cameras.

Managers of the masjid didn’t see a security measure, but rather an attempt to impose Israeli sovereignty.

Director of al-Aqsa masjid, Omar Kiswani says the closure of al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the occupation in itself and the prevention of the call for prayers are all unfair and unjust and constitute a violation to the United Nations resolutions and the international agreements.

“We hold the Israeli government responsible for the changes they have made in the al-Aqsa Mosque and taking its control away from us. We will stay outside the mosque until we get back the way it was taken from us.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the additional security measures on Saturday, saying they gave Israel “almost complete control over what goes on” in the compound, to prevent future attacks.
