Jewish extremists call for storming al-Aqsa

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said that Jewish extremist groups have called for storming al-Aqsa mosque next Wednesday to mark the 46th anniversary of the occupation of the eastern part of the occupied city of Jerusalem.

The Foundation warned against the seriousness of such calls and called for defending al-Aqsa mosque, stressing that this call came in light of the Israeli continued escalation to impose a new reality in the city.

Jewish groups called in a statement for broad participation in the night march towards the Old City in Jerusalem, and then to Asbat Gate to perform Talmudic rituals and to break into al-Aqsa mosque.

In related context, a number of Israeli settlers stormed on Tuesday al-Aqsa mosque including the MK Shuli Muallm in light of the Israeli escalated calls to build the alleged Temple.

Hundreds of Jerusalemite worshipers and students have come to the scene defending al-Aqsa mosque.
