Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli police on Monday broke into the house of the Preacher of Al Aqsa mosque, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, in occupied Jerusalem.
QNN correspondent said Israeli cops broke into the house of Sheikh Sabri, President of the High Islamic Council and Preacher of al Aqsa Mosque, in the neighbourhood of Suwwaneh in occupied Jerusalem.
She added that the Israeli attack came a few hours after statements by him regarding the Israeli intention to allow extremist settlers to break into Al Aqsa mosque while banning Muslim worshipers from performing prayers at the holy mosque.
Sheikh Sabri had warned today that if the Israeli authorities allow settlers to break into the holy mosque from the Magharbeh gate, all the other gates of the holy mosque will be open for worshipers.
Al Aqsa mosque has been closed for worshipers for 36 days so far among health measures, taken by the Islamic Waqf, to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Extremist terrorist groups have been recently calling for reopening the holy mosque for settlers while preventing worshipers from entering it.
