Hamas Islamic Resistance

Press release on defilement of al-Aqsa by Israeli settlers

20 October, 19

The ongoing raids on al-Aqsa Mosque, the Muslims’ first Qibla and third holiest site, by Israeli settlers, who desecrate the sacred compound and assault Palestinian worshippers, are provocative to all Muslims worldwide and a serious aggression against the Islamic holy sites.  

The unfair US decisions and normalising ties with the Israeli occupation by some Arab parties have prompted Israeli settlers to desecrate al-Aqsa Mosque. 

The ongoing violations at al-Aqsa Mosque will spark unrest in the whole region, and the Israeli occupation will pay a price for this. Then it will be held responsible for horrible consequences.  

As it salutes Jerusalem’s Palestinian residents and all Palestinian defending al-Aqsa Mosque and fighting off all Israeli schemes and aggressive practices, Hamas calls on the Palestinian people to repulse the ongoing Israeli assaults at al-Aqsa Mosque as part of their religious and national duty towards the sacred complex.

Hamas urges all Arabs and Muslims to launch a widespread campaign in support of the Palestinian people in occupied Jerusalem to enforce their steadfastness in the face of the Israeli occupation and pressure the decision-makers in the region to break their silence and assume their duties towards Palestine and its people, Jerusalem, and al-Aqsa Mosque.
