Jewish organizations called on Israel’s newly-appointed National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir to allow the ritual slaughter of lamb in Al-Aqsa Mosque to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Passover, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.
According to Israeli media, several Jewish organizations submitted a formal request to Ben-Gvir and the Israeli police to allow them to carry out the Passover sacrifice in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
This year, Passover falls during the Muslim Holy month of Ramadan.
The requests came following Ben-Gvir’s recent storming of Al-Aqsa, which was condemned internationally.
Similar calls were made last year with Jewish groups taking to social media platforms to encourage people to sacrifice a lamb at the Muslim Holy site.
