Fatah official claims Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza are "an Islamic Mosque and nothing else" and that Israel "attempts to Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque"

Headline: "Al-Qawasmi: The settlers' invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque are an Israeli crime that we will not ignore"
"Fatah Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi stated that the invasions by the extremist settlers, led by the extremist [Yehuda] Glick, of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza constitute a crime against the Islamic holy sites and the Palestinian people's rights, a scandalous violation of international law, a gross offense against Muslim sensibilities and harming of their rights to their blessed mosque, and an Israeli attempt to establish facts on the ground and turn the settlers' invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque into a routine matter – which will not happen under any circumstances. In a press statement, Al-Qawasmi emphasized that the Palestinian people will come out against Israeli attempts to Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and establish facts on the ground under different slogans. Likewise, he emphasized that the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza will remain an Islamic mosque and nothing else, and that it is a red line [that cannot be crossed]. He also added that any attempt to change the status quo before and after the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 will lead to a complete explosion of the situation in the occupied territories."

The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion."
