Israeli occupation forces have expelled Fatah Secretary in Jerusalem, Shadi Mutwar, from Al-Aqsa Mosque, Safa news agency reported yesterday.

According to the news site, occupation authorities summoned Mutwar and accused him of inciting chaos as he had called for worshippers to increase their presence at Al-Aqsa Mosque during Fajr (morning) prayer.

After questioning him, the Israeli occupation handed him a deportation order for six months.

This is the 13th consecutive deportation order against Mutwar, the news agency said.

Israel has increased its aggression against Palestinians who are working to oppose what they believe is the occupation's "take-over" of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
