GAZA, (PIC)– The Hamas Movement urged Jordan to assume its role in protecting the Palestinian holy sites under its custodianship, especially the Aqsa Mosque, from Israel’s violations and Judaization plans
“We call upon the state of Jordan to assume its responsibilities towards the holy Aqsa Mosque in its capacity as the custodian of the Palestinian Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem,” Hamas stated in a press release on Friday.
“We also urge the Arab League and the organization of Islamic cooperation to assume their responsibilities towards the Palestinian Islamic and Christian holy sites,” the Movement added.
The Movement expressed its deep concern over the Israeli moves that aim to divide the Aqsa Mosque temporally and spatially between Muslims and Jews, stressing that the Aqsa Mosque would always be purely Islamic and belong to Muslims alone.
