Palestine: Calls for killing Palestinians instead of detaining them & Israelis storm al-Aqsa

Bennett calls for killing Palestinians instead of detaining them

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Tadamun foundation for human rights said that the Israeli minister of economy Naftali Bennett indirectly called on Tuesday for killing the Palestinians rather than arresting and later releasing them.

The foundation stated that Bennett, a noted right-wing Zionist figure, described on his facebook page the Palestinian prisoners to be released soon by the Israel side as murderers who should be killed.

According to the foundation, Bennett also called for stopping to name the Palestinian prisoners as detainees because as he claimed they were arrested for killing Israelis and not because of traffic violations.

He also said that the detention of the Palestinians are no longer a deterrent to them, so he pledged to work on having the Israeli army to reconsider its methods when dealing with what he described as the criminals.

Tadamun foundation considered such remarks by Bennett as indirect incitement to killing the Palestinians instead of detaining them, pointing that Bennett strongly opposes the idea of releasing Palestinian prisoners as a goodwill gesture to resume the peace process.


Israeli settlers and soldiers storm al-Aqsa Mosque

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israeli settlers and elements of Shin Bet broke into al-Aqsa mosque on Tuesday from the Mughrabi Gate under tight security protection.

Nearly 15 elements of Shin Bet (the Israeli Intelligence service) have stormed al-Aqsa mosque Tuesday morning, while another group, includes 15 settlers and 50 soldiers, broke into the mosque as part of the Israeli discovery tours in the mosque, Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said.

The foundation pointed out that a state of alert has prevailed in al-Aqsa mosque since Sunday where a large number of Israeli soldiers are deployed in its courtyards, while a state of anticipation has prevailed among the students.

The Israeli break-ins into al-Aqsa mosque came following the interior and environment committee of the Knesset’s session, held on Sunday, to table a proposal calling for allowing the Jews to desecrate the Aqsa Mosque, a holy site for Muslims, to perform their rituals, especially during their religious days and festivals as part of the Israeli schemes to divide the mosque between Muslims and Jews as what happened with the Ibrahimi mosque.

For his part, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, warned of the serious implication of the Israeli government’s decision to open the mosque gates to the Jewish settlers.

He pointed out that the Israeli break-ins and attacks into al-Aqsa mosque and Islamic and Christian holy sites have escalated. The Grand Mufti stressed the need for an Arab, Islamic and international interference, warning of religious war erupting in the region.

For his part, Dr. Najeh Bkeirat the director of manuscripts department at Al Aqsa Mosque accused the Palestinian Authority (PA) of providing cover to the Israeli continued break-ins to the mosque.

The Israeli escalated attacks against al-Aqsa mosque are due to the PA’s decision to resume peace talks with the occupation, he added.

Bkeirat criticized the PA minor role concerning the Palestinian fateful issues, pointing out that talks resumption liquidated Jerusalem and Palestinian land issue.
