Abbas' Advisor baselessly "warns of a massacre by the occupation and its settlers against Palestinian worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque"
Headline: “Al-Ruweidi: The occupation is striving to escalate the situation in Jerusalem”
“Yesterday [April 3, 2022, PA] Presidential Office Advisor on Jerusalem Affairs Ahmed Al-Ruweidi warned against a massacre by the occupationand its settlers against the worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, especially in light of the escalation and incitement by the settlers…
In a press release, Al-Ruweidi added that the occupation’s large military presence in Jerusalem yesterday, the confrontations that were recorded at the Damascus Gate area, and the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in large numbers prove that the occupation is striving to escalate the situation in Jerusalem.
He explained that the occupation is heating up the situation in Jerusalem, and that it has decided to cause an escalation through arrests and harming the worshippers…
Al-Ruweidi added that the dangerous statements being made by the settler leaders confirm that they intend to carry out attacks against the [Arab] residents of Jerusalem.”
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.
