The Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas warned on Wednesday that it would not remain silent over Israel’s continuous aggressions against the Islamic holy places in occupied Jerusalem.
In a statement, Hamas reportedly said that what is going on in Jerusalem is at “the core of the real conflict, which will not end without ending the Israeli occupation”.
“All the repeated and continuous aggressions on Al-Aqsa Mosque, carried out by Israeli occupation forces and its illegal settlers, are only part of a grander series of Judaisation activities for the city of Jerusalem and all Palestinian lands,” the statement said.
The statement added: “The acceleration of this Zionist aggression comes in the context of prevailing uncertainty in the Arab and Islamic world, as all eyes have been deviated from looking directly at Palestine and its holy place, as well as the crimes of the Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip.”
Concluding the statement, Hamas reiterated that it would not accept the Judaisation of Jerusalem and “is ready to pay any price to prevent this from happening,” vowing that: “We will do all we can to purify the holy sites from the Israeli occupation. We will never recognise, under any circumstances, any political, demographic or religious changes made to the map.”
Hamas also called upon the nations and governments around the world to look at what the Zionists are doing in Jerusalem, asking them to take action to stop it.
