Member of Hamas’ political bureau Izzat Al-Rishq welcomed Jordan’s decision to host an international conference on the dangers facing Al-Aqsa Mosque under the patronage of King Abdullah II.

“Jordan’s official announcement of hosting an international conference to support Al-Aqsa Mosque is a step in the right direction to stop the Judaisation programme,” he said.

Al-Rishq said King Abdullah II’s patronage of the conference is an important message that highlights the dangers facing Muslim sanctities.
