Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher Sheikh Ismail Nawahda on Friday said that Israel’s displacement of the Palestinians of Khan al-Ahmar Bedouin community falls in line with a planned ethnic cleansing policy.
During his Friday sermon at al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Nawahda praised the steadfastness of the people of Khan al-Ahmar and the solidarity activists from various nationalities who support their cause and condemned the Israeli violent aggressions on them over the past days.
He also denounced the Israeli government’s decision to tighten the blockade on the Gaza Strip under flimsy pretexts.
Al-Aqsa preacher pointed out that Israel is currently seeking to divide al-Aqsa Mosque spatially and temporally in order to build the alleged temple, stressing that the stepped up incursions by extremist settlers and members of the Knesset into the holy site are part of this plan.
Nawahda called on the Muslim nation to shoulder its responsibilities toward Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque and support the Palestinian people there by all possible means.
