Royal committee warns against Zionist scheme to gain full control of Al-Aqsa’s environs

The Royal Jordanian Committee for Jerusalem affairs has warned of a Zionist plan aimed at gaining full geographic and demographic control of the area surrounding the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem by displacing the Palestinian population and Judaising the identity and landmarks of the holy city.

In a press statement the secretary general of the committee, Abdullah Canaan, said that the Occupation is working toward the implementation of the Judaisation policy in Jerusalem through wide scale excavations and implementation of several commercial and tourist projects. Other mechanisms include tunnels and electric elevators on the land belonging to the Al-Buraq site and below it in order to link it to the town of Silwan.


Canaan warned that “the ‘Israeli scheme’ which was revealed on Wednesday by Haaretz newspaper’s website, aims to expel the inhabitants of the town of Silwan which is near to Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to give the Israeli authorities full geographic and demographic control of the areas surrounding the Mosque.”
