Tension grows after Israeli assault on Esplanade of the Mosques

Ramallah, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) The Israeli military stormed the Esplanade of the Mosques, in East Jerusalem, to allow the mass entry of Israeli believers to the religious complex on the occasion of the celebrations for the Jewish New Year.

Arab television networks showed images of hundreds of Israelis as they toured the compound, escorted by troops, who expelled the Palestinians present, which caused clashes.

The occupation authorities began to impose restrictions on the entry of Muslim worshipers to Al-Aqsa early in the morning, reported the Al Quds news portal.

The military also attacked Palestinians during their concentration in the Bab Al-Asbat, Al-Sahira and Bab Al-Amoud areas of the city.

Given the situation, the Fatah government movement called for a general mobilization to confront the incursions of “extremist Jewish groups and settlers.”

Fatah assured that the new assault is part of the strategy to Judaize the “Holy City”. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine spoke in a similar vein, calling for protests in the occupied territories and denouncing the international silence in the face of Tel Aviv’s actions.

The holy site is revered both by Muslims, who call it the Mosque Esplanade, and by Jews, who know it as the Temple Mount.

Under agreements reached decades ago, Jews are only allowed to visit the complex, with numerous conditions, but not to pray.
