Mustafa al-Barghouti, the Secretary General of the Palestinian National Initiative has stated that Israeli raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque during the last ten days of Ramadan are a “dangerous incitement”. He added that these actions will incite further anger in Palestinians and Muslims, reported on Monday.

Barghotui said that the desecration of the mosque and violations against worshipers by Israeli settlers who are protected by Israeli police is a form of “racism” and a violation of the freedom of worship.

He added that the Israeli authorities are placing a new status quo in the mosque based on partitioning it.

He further called for all Palestinians to attend the final Jumuah prayer at Al-Aqsa mosque on the last Friday of Ramadan, and to remain inside it as long as possible.
