Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Islamic Jihad movement has said that it will not allow the occupation state to compromise Al Aqsa mosque. It added that it will confront the Israeli settlers’ provocations with full force.
“The occupation will have a foothold [in Al Aqsa]”, the resistance movement said in a statement issued today.
“The settlers’ raid today puts us before a real test. We either risk our lives defending our holy places… or we surrender.”
“It is impossible for us to accept the second choice.”
The movement also called on native Palestinians across Palestine to flock towards Al Aqsa mosque.
Yesterday, the Israeli army increased its forces in the West Bank and settlements near Gaza. It also declared high alert in fear of the resistance to retaliate against Jerusalem’s settlers’ raid.
