Palestine: A march in Al Aqsa Mosque in protest at its desecration & demands about the condition of sick captive

Worshipers stage a march in Al Aqsa Mosque in protest at its desecration

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Worshipers at Al Aqsa Mosque staged a march in its squares after Friday prayers; in protest at settlers’ raids and the targeting of the mosque by the occupation.

The protesters chanted slogans condemning the occupation and calling for supporting Al Aqsa Mosque.

Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council, asserted during Friday sermon that Al Aqsa Mosque is a red line for all Muslims, stressing the Muslims’ rejection for all the occupation authorities and settlers’ schemes.

Sheikh Sabri reminded of the fatwa he issued almost four years ago and which prohibits the exchange of land.

Palestine is not for sale nor for compromise because it is a purely Islamic endowment, he said.


An organization demands that condition of sick captive be revealed

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian Center for Prisoners’ Studies demanded that the Israeli Prison Authority reveals the nature of illness of captive Muhammad al-Sharha, 32, from the town of Dura, south of al-Khalil, who is suspected of having throat cancer.

The center said that Sharha has been in detention for the past 12 years. Two years ago, he started suffering from a swelling in his neck. For long months the IPA refused to take him to a hospital to be examined. They only took him to hospital after fellow captives took protest steps. There was talk after that of him suffering from a throat cancer similar to that suffered by martyr Maysara Abu Hamdeyyah, who was kept in prison, without proper medical treatment, till he died.

The center added that doctors have not informed him officially of this, neither have they denied it. Samples were taken two months ago for testing, but till now neither the prisoner nor his family has been informed of the nature of the illness. His family are living in constant worry as the initial diagnosis suggest cancer.

The center held the occupation authority fully responsible for the life of the captive, because it concealed the truth about his illness, giving the illness time to take hold and become difficult to treat, similar to what they did with martyr Maysara Abu Hamdeyyah.
