PA Foreign Ministry calls to defend Al-Aqsa from Israel “invasions” before “disaster” occurs

Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs demands that the international community act urgently to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque before the disaster occurs”

“The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the escalation in the occupation authorities and settlers’ invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plazas while using the Jewish holidays as a pretext…

The ministry said that the exploitation of the Jewish holidays to carry out colonialist expansion plans is liable to lead to a religious war in the region…

It called on UN Secretary-General [António Guterres] to hurry and activate the system of international defense for the Palestinian people, its land, and its holy sites before it is too late. It also called on the Arab world and Islamic world to act quickly to help the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem residents – before the disaster occurs.”


Break-in/Invasion/attack of Al-Aqsa Mosque - The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, they vilify any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
