Fatah musters Palestinians 'in defense' of Al-Aqsa
Headline: “The occupation police chief and several ‘veterans’ invaded the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
“Director of Public Relations and Information of the [Jordanian] Islamic Waqf Directorate Fares Al-Dibs reported that the occupation's Jerusalem Police Chief Yoram Halevy and a group of 'veterans' who occupied the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1967 invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday [Jan. 24, 2019] from the direction of the Mughrabi Gate…
The Fatah Movement called on the members of our people to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and defend it from these recurring attacks and invasions.
Fatah Revolutionary Council member [and official Fatah Spokesman] Osama Al-Qawasmi… said: 'We are surprised and condemn the silence of some of the factions that raise their voices loudly when money is late coming in and threaten to fire rockets, yet currently in light of the Israeli crimes against Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque they are silent as the grave.'"
The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion” or a "break-in." 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.
