Statement on Israeli court's ruling allowing colonial settlers to perform Talmudic rituals at Al-Aqsa

| Statements

Israeli occupation's court support for Jewish and colonial settlers to perform their Talmudic rituals during their provocative storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards is a serious aggression against the Palestinian people and their sanctities and an attack on the Islamic identity of the Al-Aqsa.

The occupation's court ruling violates international law and contravenes all international resolutions that stipulate that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a place belonging to Muslims only, and no one else has the right to practice their worship there.

The occupation's court ruling would drag the region into a cycle of violence, in which the occupation government bears full responsibility for its consequences.

The decision aims to impose the temporal and spatial division of the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, which paves the way for a religious war that we have long warned of. 

Accordingly, the Israeli occupation's aggressive behaviors in the Al-Aqsa Mosque will provoke the feelings of 1.7 billion Muslims, and the likelihood of a religious war certainly spill over the boundaries of occupied Palestine.
