Mohammed Abu Tair, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, denounced on Saturday an arson attack by Israeli settlers on al-Badriya mosque in Jerusalem’s Sharfat village.
In a statement, Abu Tair called on the Palestinian people to unite and fight off Israeli settlers’ attacks on holy sites and mosque, above all the al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Jerusalem MP hailed the huge crowds of Palestinian worshippers who gathered in the al-Aqsa Mosque to defend the sacred compound against Israeli violations and measures.
Israeli occupation authorities on Friday banned Palestinian worshippers to performing Fajr prayer at al-Aqsa Mosque complex, Abu Tair pointed out, condemning Israeli occupation forces for attacking and detaining the Palestinian worshippers.
Abu Tair stressed that Israeli assaults and arrest campaigns at al-Aqsa Mosque aimed at dissuading the Palestinian people from accessing the holy complex.
