Fatah: Israel attempting to “Judaize East Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“The Fatah Movement emphasized that the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the sites holy to Islam and Christianity are red lines and the settlers cannot ever be allowed to harm them.
[Fatah] Movement Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi: ‘The fact that a Jewish family from the settlement of Kiryat Arba held religious ceremonies at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza (i.e., memorial for terror victim Hallel Yaffa Ariel on the Temple Mount), and the settlers' repeated invasions of it, are a dangerous matter that heralds an explosion of the situation.’
Al-Qawasmi said that the attempts of the occupation state to Judaize East Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque constitute contempt for the international community and its laws. Likewise, he emphasized Fatah's opposition to the occupation's efforts to turn the invasions into a fait accompli, and recalled the Jerusalem uprising (i.e., several months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis 2015 - 2016) that came in order to express the opposition of the Palestinian people and its leadership to the harm to the sites holy to the Palestinian people.
Fatah demanded that the Arab and Muslim states fulfill their responsibilities, exert active pressure, and [demanded them] to speak in terms of interests with the world nations in order to pressure the occupation state, and it warned against ignoring the dangers and the bad and ominous consequences of the Judaization of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
Muhammad Taraireh – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist, who stabbed and murdered 13-year-old American Israeli Hallel Yaffa Ariel, as she slept in her bed, in her home in Kiryat Arba near Hebron, on June 30, 2016. Taraireh also injured one of the Israeli security personnel before he was shot and killed.
