Aqsa foundation urges Muslim nation to move to protect Aqsa Mosque

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage appealed to the Muslim nation to urgently move to save the Aqsa Mosque from Judaization, warning that the Mosque is facing fateful and critical moments.

In a press release on Sunday, the Aqsa foundation said the Jews prepared detailed maps, blueprints, models and tools to build their alleged temple on the ruins of the Aqsa Mosque.

It asserted that Israel’s channel 2 broadcast a report on Saturday evening about the process of building the alleged temple of Solomon and revealed that there are materials and tools in place to be used in the construction process.

The foundation noted that the release of such report took place a few days after a horde of Israeli right-wing journalists and media figures defiled the Aqsa Mosque. Their news agencies, at the same time, made special reports confirming that the Israeli regime and its Jewish arms had prepared plans to carry out a major assault on the Aqsa Mosque.
