The Palestinian Ministry of Religious Endowment (Awqaf) yesterday warned of increasing attacks by Israeli Jewish settlers on Al-Aqsa Mosque, Safa news agency reported.

This warning comes amidst calls by extremist settler groups and organisations to increase raids of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the last days of Ramadan.

Meanwhile, the ministry condemned the Israeli police’s attacks on worshippers in the mosque and their arrest and eviction from the area during the holy month.

It called on the international community and all the rights groups to work towards putting an end to the violations carried out by the settlers and the Israeli police throughout the year.
