Israeli army preparing for attack of Al-Aqsa Mosque

“The Al-Aqsa Institute for Religious Trusts and Heritage said yesterday, in an urgent announcement that it publicized, that vast and diverse forces of the occupation army are holding extensive training in what appears to be preparation for large-scale events that will take place at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Teams from the Al-Aqsa Institute visited the [training] site, located in the Ben-Shemen forest. The Al-Aqsa Institute teams noted concentrations of large forces of the Israeli army and police, and vehicles belonging to the Special Forces. Inside what resembled a camp, they had built a model of the Dome of the Rock, and alongside it a model of the alleged Temple... Spokesman for the Islamic Movement in the Palestinian Interior [PA euphemism for Israel], Adv. Zahi Nujidat, said in response: ‘It is no secret that the Israeli establishment dreams day and night of building the alleged Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. On the ground, the said establishment is causing actual damage to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and this ‘training’ exposes the ideas, the intentions and the foundations behind the plots that are being fashioned against the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the corridors of the Israeli establishment.”
