PA government: Plan to build prayer platforms for Jews near the Western Wall is "an act of aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque”

     “The [PA] government announced during its weekly meeting held yesterday [Feb. 10, 2016] in Ramallah, led by [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, its willingness to submit its resignation in order to assist the Palestinian reconciliation and the establishment of a national unity government [between Fatah and Hamas]…
The government warned of the Israeli excavations south and south-west of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza, and in the Al-Buraq (i.e., Western Wall) plaza, and demanded international intervention to cancel the implementation of the Israeli government’s decision to place prayer platforms for Jews on the Islamic Waqf’s territory in the area of the Mughrabi Gate, near the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza (i.e., the Western Wall)…
The government emphasized that attempts to attack the Al-Buraq plaza are in fact an act of aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Islamic waqfs (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law).
Likewise, it emphasized that the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) is an inseparable part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza, and that everything it faces, whether from the west, north, or south, is an Islamic waqf which belongs to Muslims alone.”
