According to the minister; Israeli occupation forces have committed more than 30 violations and stormings against Al-Aqsa Mosqu

e and prevented the adhan (call to prayer) at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron more than 50 times in October.

The minister warned that the dangerous escalations against Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and Hebron’s Old City are part of plans set by the Israeli government and extremist settler associations to Judaise the areas.

“The Israeli government is dedicated to increasing the number of Jewish settlers who participate in the incursions against the [Al-Aqsa] mosque as a prelude to dividing it between Muslims and Jews temporally and spatially,” the minister said.

“The Israeli occupation continues its systematic Judaisation policy including surrounding the Al-Aqsa Mosque and preventing Muslim worshippers from accessing it freely and safely,” he said, adding that the Israeli incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque increase during Jewish holidays.
