Al-Aqsa sanctuary attacks continue

Zionist fanatics once again violated the sanctity of the al-Aqsa sanctuary on Monday and Tuesday by desecrating the al-Buraq wall.

Almost 3,000 settlers spearheaded by right-wing rabbis and Knesset members rallied overnight on Tuesday. They participated in congregational rituals and celebrations to mark the nakba of Palestine.

Moreover, on Tuesday around 60 right-wing Israelis raided the Al-Aqsa sanctuary through the Moroccan Gate, escorted by Israeli security officers.

These latest attacks come after a state of extreme caution and attention has prevailed in occupied East Jerusalem and at the al-Aqsa sanctuary since extremist Jewish groups declared their intention to stage a massive march on Tuesday to the al-Aqsa sanctuary to demand their government take full control of the sanctuary.

The latest developments concerning al-Aqsa sanctuary are becoming critical, as they reflect a worrying trend of an increase in attacks on the al-Aqsa sanctuary and the Palestinians who worship within it. 

Israeli MPs, politicians, illegal settlers and tourists now violate the sanctity of the al-Aqsa sanctuary on a daily basis, safe in the knowledge that their actions will not be contested and that they will enjoy the security of occupying Israeli forces. It is no exaggeration to say that the al-Aqsa sanctuary faces the very real prospect of destruction by the Israelis, who are making their threats against the sanctuary with alarming alacrity and regularity.

Such trespasses on the holy site cannot be allowed to continue and the international community must begin to take appropriate action to pressure Israel into respecting the Palestinian heritage within the Holy al-Aqsa sanctuary.
