GAZA STRIP (Dispatches) – The spokesman of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas slammed the Zionists desecration of holy Muslim sites, saying that Al-Aqsa and prisoner are Palestine’s redline.
According to the Palestinian Information Center (PIC), Hamas spokesman Hazem Qasim clarified in a press statement that the movement’s redlines is not just a “motto” but they are a fact that was proven both in the Battle of Saif Al-Quds (Sword of Quds) and in other battles.
Qasim stated that the current hard-line cabinet of the Zionist regime has launched a religious war against the Islamic and Christian sanctuaries of Al-Quds and is seeking to implement the plan to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque by any means.
Pointing out that the Zionist enemy has escalated the war and put pressure on the Quds residents with the aim of forcing them out, he emphasized that all the actions of the Zionist cabinet in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its surroundings are carried out with the aim of implementing the Jewishization plan in holy Quds.
The Hamas spokesman further stated that the last crime committed by the Zionist enemy against the Palestinian nation was the attack on Palestinian prisoners in Ramon prison on Sunday morning.
He pointed out that the extremist Zionist cabinet, led by a number of extremists, is trying to put pressure on the prisoners with the aim of breaking their resolve, because the prisoners and Al-Aqsa Mosque are among the Palestinians’ symbols and red lines.
Qasim stated that the crimes committed by the extremist Zionist regime’s cabinet will face a strengthened Palestinian people’s resistance.
The remarks came as hundreds of Zionist settlers on Sunday forced their way into the flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque complex to celebrate a Jewish holiday.
In a statement, the Jordan-run Islamic Waqf Department said Zionist troops closed the Al-Mughrabi Gate, southwest of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, “after allowing 602 extremists” into the site.
According to witnesses, the settlers entered the site in groups.
The Palestinian Al-Quds Governorate published a video on its Facebook account of settlers trying to enter animal sacrifices inside the complex.
Israeli police began allowing the settler incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in 2003, despite repeated condemnations from Palestinians.
