The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, hailed on Monday the guards of al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinian worshipers who refused to enter the Mosque through the metal detectors installed at its gates.
Hamas’s spokesman, Abdullatif al-Qanou’, said in a press statement that these “dangerous and unprecedented measures” are aimed at tightening the Israeli control over al-Aqsa Mosque, adding that they will definitely fail.
For his part, head of the Hamas Political Bureau, Ismail Haneyya, in a statement on Monday, warned that the latest Israeli measures imposed on al-Aqsa Mosque fall in line with an Israeli scheme to divide the site.
Haneyya saluted the steadfast Jerusalemite people and Awqaf officials who refused to succumb to the Israeli measures and enter the Mosque via the metal detectors.
He urged all concerned organizations, especially the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League, to act urgently to put an end to the Israeli crimes.
He called on Muslim scholars to mobilize official and popular efforts to thwart the Judaization schemes targeting al-Aqsa Mosque.
