Fatah: Israel carrying out “historic, religious, and cultural massacre” against Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque

Headline: “Fatah calls for unification of the efforts to protect the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]”
       “The Fatah movement called to unify the efforts to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza, in all possible legitimate ways.  Fatah Spokesperson Osama Al-Qawasmi stated yesterday that the harm to the holy places, and especially to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza, is against international treaties and laws, and constitutes a violation of citizens’ rights, which must be opposed by resolve and Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic). Likewise, he emphasized that the Fatah fighters and our entire people, especially residents of Jerusalem and the [19]48 territories (i.e., Israel), stand firm against the implementation of plots to Judaize Jerusalem. The Fatah movement called on nations and forces throughout the world to act immediately to prevent the historic, religious, and cultural massacre, which the occupation state is gradually perpetrating against Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
