PA teachers’ union calls for Palestinian Martyrdom: “We will redeem Al-Aqsa with our souls… and sacrifice our soul and blood”
Official PA TV news:
PA TV host: "The General Union of [Palestinian] Teachers in all districts of the homeland organized demonstrations and marches in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy sites."
PA TV reporter: "In all districts of the homeland, the teachers cancelled their classes and went out to demonstrations and marches in support of the blessed Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. Here at the Al-Manara Square, in the center of Ramallah, teachers and students demonstrated, with calls condemning the occupation's crimes against the holy city (i.e., Jerusalem)."
Secretary-General of the General Union of Palestinian Teachers Ahmed Sahwil: "The Union of Palestinian Teachers, Palestine's teachers and students, went out today to the main squares on the West Bank and in Gaza, in order to say 'No to occupation, no to the despicable attack on the Al-Aqsa [Mosque].' We will redeem the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] with our souls so that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu the criminal, the gangs of settlers, his soldiers and robbers will understand that the Palestinian people will sacrifice its soul and blood for the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."
A girl at the demonstration: "We left the schools in order to participate and to stand by the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and to identify with them [the Murabitin] (i.e., those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) and to stop the movement of the occupation in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], and we hope it will be liberated."
Pictures from the demonstration shows sign with text: "Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem."
The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "attack."
