PA Minister of Jerusalem Affairs emphasize that Temple Mount is “purely Islamic”

Headline: “Al-Husseini rejected Netanyahu’s claims”
“Governor of Jerusalem district and Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Adnan Al-Husseini rejected the statements of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Likewise, he warned against the deception and lies he uses when he speaks of his commitment to maintaining the status quo at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and not allowing non-Muslims to pray in it, but rather only Muslims.

Likewise, he [Al-Husseini] emphasized that the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including all its mosques, domes, buildings, and plaza, which stands on 144 dunams (approximately 35.6 acres -Ed.), is a purely Islamic site, where it is forbidden for non-Muslims to pray or worship, and its management is under the exclusive authority of the [Jerusalem] Islamic Waqf [Foundation] of the Jordanian Ministry of religion and Islamic matters.”
