Jewish groups are calling on the Israeli public to take part in preparations for events which they hope will take place in Al-Aqsa Mosque on the eve of the Jewish Passover, Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage has warned.
The preparations are due to take place on the evening of Thursday April 10 at the site west of Jerusalem, when Jewish groups will simulate how to offer Easter sacrifices in Al-Aqsa Mosque in the hope that they would implement this plan in reality on Passover.
In a press release, the Al-Aqsa Foundation added that these Jewish groups had sent a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to convince him to facilitate the procedures of building a synagogue near Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The letter was signed by a number of rabbis and academics.
The Al-Aqsa Foundation called on Muslims to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque more regularly and warned of the repercussions of Jewish extremists’ intrusions into the mosque and their schemes against it.
The Foundation said that the latest Jewish calls to storm Al-Aqsa and make Easter sacrifices inside it and also the plans to build a synagogue in the mosque’s grounds, constitute “serious indications that the occupation is stepping up its violations of Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
