‘A recent report says the Israeli regime is planning to build a synagogue in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) as part of its efforts to further Judaize the occupied Palestinian territories, Press TV reports.
According to the report recently published by the al-Aqsa Foundation and based on the information leaked from the Israeli Knesset, the plan will divide the compound, taking one-fifth for the Jews in order for them to perform their religious rituals there.
Senior officials from the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, have spoken out against the move, calling for a large-scale intervention from Arab states.
Leader of the Hamas Political Bureau Khaled Mashal stated that the measure is part of the Tel Aviv regime’s strategy to demolish al-Aqsa Mosque and eradicate Islamic history of the site.’
