Eleven local radio stations in the Gaza Strip yesterday launched a joint broadcast to highlight the Israeli escalations in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The coordinator of the Federation of Islamic Radio and Television, Saleh Al-Masri, said the broadcast will address the Israeli violations in Al-Aqsa Mosque; the most recent of which was the setting up of electronic gates outside the mosque’s entrances.
Al-Masri said in remarks to Quds Press that scientists, researchers and jurists are expected to participate in the joint broadcast from inside and outside Palestine to highlight the role of the Palestinian national and responsible media.
He called for concerted efforts to highlight the suffering of the Palestinians to the world, expressing his regret that the Arab and international media are not highlighting the escalations in Al-Aqsa.
“The Al-Aqsa Mosque does not concern Palestinians alone, Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa are a central issue for all nations, and the Arab and Islamic media must play their role and open areas for media coverage.”
The Israeli forces have recently stepped up their attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque. Three Palestinians from the city of Umm Al-Fahm were killed last week during clashes which in which two Israeli soldiers also died.
Following the attack, the Israeli forces closed Al-Aqsa Mosque for two days before setting up electronic checkpoints outside its gates.
