King Salman Condemns Israel For Provocative Practices At Al Aqsa Mosque

RIYADH: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques condemnation of the provocative practices carried out by an Israeli official, who stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The ministry expressed Saudi Arabia’s regret for the practices of the Israeli occupation authorities that undermine international peace efforts and contradict international principles and norms in respect of religious sanctities.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reaffirmed Saudi Arabia’s firm position to stand by the brotherly Palestinian people, and support all efforts aimed at ending the occupation and reaching a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue, enabling the Palestinian people to establish their independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

FOA on Ben-Gvir's provocative visit to Al-Aqsa

FOA is deeply concerned but not surprised by Israeli security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir’s provocative visit to Al-Aqsa.

Ben-Gvir is a far-right racist who has made clear his ambition to increase Israeli control of the sacred site.

The number of incursions and attacks on Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa has rapidly increased in recent years. 48,000 Israeli settlers stormed Al-Aqsa in 2022, more than any year previously. We are now seeing increased calls in Israel for the destruction of Al-Aqsa and its replacement with a Jewish temple.

Al-Aqsa is an important symbol of Palestinian nationhood and culture, and a hugely significant site for Muslims worldwide It must be protected from Israeli occupation and apartheid.

“This is another attempt by Netanyahu’s new far-right government to further Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and its apartheid regime” says FOA. “Ben-Gvir has only been in office for 3 days and already he’s challenging the historic status quo of Al-Aqsa and deliberately provoking Palestinians”.

FOA calls on Foreign Secretary James Cleverly to not only condemn Israeli provocation at Al-Aqsa but also impose sanctions on Israel without hesitation.

Israel’s Ben-Gvir enters Al-Aqsa: Why was it seen as provocative?

The far-right Israeli national security minister had been warned by Israel’s former PM that his move would spark violence.

Israel’s far-right national security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem in a move Palestinians called a “deliberate provocation”, ignoring warnings from Israeli politicians that his appearance at the holy site would inflame tensions.

Ben-Gvir said he would not “surrender to the threats of Hamas” after the Palestinian group warned that his entrance to the site on Tuesday would cross a “red line”.

The minister, widely regarded as a provocateur, has previously called for the displacement of Palestinians.

Let’s take a look at why his entrance to Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is so controversial:

What is the status of Al-Aqsa?
The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound (also known as al-Haram al-Sharif by Muslims and the Temple Mount by Jews) is a wide, walled plaza in the heart of the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem. It incorporates the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
It is considered holy by both Muslims and Jews and is a Palestinian national symbol.

One of the walls of the compound, the Western Wall – also referred to as the Wailing Wall or the Buraq Wall – is a holy site for Jewish prayer. Jews pray undisturbed on the side of the wall that is outside the compound.

Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since 1967. The occupation is illegal under international law.

The compound has been managed continuously by Muslims, under a waqf (religious endowment), for hundreds of years.
The Jordanian-funded waqf has continued to administer the site since 1967, while Israel has security control. Under a longstanding agreement, the status quo of the site only permits Muslim prayer, and visits from non-Muslims are only permitted at specific times.

Why is the site so sensitive for Palestinians?
As a site that carries religious and national significance, Palestinians are alert to any attempts to change the status quo of Al-Aqsa.

The increased number of ultranationalist Jews entering the compound, and the frequent storming of the site by Israeli security forces, including inside the prayer hall of Al-Aqsa Mosque, has increased Palestinian anger.

Confrontations between Israeli security forces and settler groups on one side and Palestinians on the other have occurred numerous times over the past two years, particularly following storming incidents in Al-Aqsa.

Palestinians see Al-Aqsa as one of the few national symbols that they retain some element of control over. They are, however, fearful of a slow encroachment by Jewish groups akin to what has happened at the Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, where half of the mosque was turned into a synagogue after 1967, which has gradually increased in size.

Palestinians are also worried about far-right Israeli movements that seek to demolish the Islamic structures in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and build a Jewish temple in their place.

Do Jews pray at Al-Aqsa?
Traditionally, ultra-Orthodox Jews, including senior religious authorities, have considered it religiously impermissible to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, let alone pray in it. This is because they consider the site too holy for people to step on.

Ultranationalist Jews have increasingly attempted to pray in the compound, despite it being forbidden by Israeli authorities.
Last May, an Israeli court upheld the ban after it was contested by three Jewish youths who had received a restraining order after praying at the site.

However, Israeli security forces have often turned a blind eye to “silent” prayer by Jews being escorted by police at Al-Aqsa.

What does Ben-Gvir want?
Ben-Gvir is part of Israel’s “Religious Zionist” ideological movement, which emerged in an attempt to reconcile religious Jews and Zionism. Many religious Jews were suspicious of Zionism’s secular influences.

He is also part of a growing movement in Israel that has challenged the traditional Jewish restrictions on prayer at Al-Aqsa and instead wants to encourage it.

As a member of Israel’s far right, Ben-Gvir was seen by many Israeli politicians as too extreme to work with, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was forced to seek allies from the far right, including Ben-Gvir, when many in Israel’s political mainstream opposed him.

Ben-Gvir’s position in government, which includes control over the Israeli police, highlights the strength of the “Religious Zionist” movement, which wants to maintain and expand Israeli control over the occupied Palestinian territory.

Ben-Gvir has been convicted for racist incitement against Arabs and support for “terrorism”. He has also expressed support for Baruch Goldstein, an Israeli American who killed 29 Palestinians at the Ibrahimi Mosque in 1994.

What will the Palestinian reaction be?
Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem told Al Jazeera that Ben-Gvir’s “storming” of Al-Aqsa was “a continuation of the Zionist occupation’s aggression against our sanctities and its war on their Arab identity”.

While general calls for a Palestinian response were made, no group has specifically called for attacks on Israeli targets yet.
Analysts believe that Hamas and Fatah are keen to avoid an armed confrontation with Israel, with Netanyahu in a similar position.

However, tensions in the occupied West Bank in particular could escalate, amid continued Israeli raids that made 2022 the deadliest year for Palestinians in the territory since 2006, and the growth of new armed Palestinian groups.

Israel’s opposition leader and former prime minister Yair Lapid had warned on Monday that Ben-Gvir’s planned entrance to the compound would lead to violence, and called it a “deliberate provocation that will put lives in danger”.

Israel army kills 10 Palestinians, including elderly woman
At least 20 others were injured with live ammunition during a large-scale raid on Jenin refugee camp.

Israeli troops have killed 10 Palestinians in one of the deadliest days in the occupied West Bank since Israeli raids intensified at the start of last year.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, nine of the Palestinians killed were in the Jenin refugee camp, after Israeli forces raided the area.

The other Palestinian, a 22-year-old man, was shot by Israeli forces in the town of al-Ram, north of Jerusalem.

In the Jenin raid, which Palestinians have described as a “massacre”, at least 20 others were wounded with live ammunition. Four of them were in critical condition.

The dead included an elderly woman, according to Palestinian officials. She was identified as Magda Obaid by the Jenin hospital authorities.

Israeli forces, who withdrew from Jenin after the killings, said they were looking into reports of the woman’s death.

Meanwhile, Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade – an armed militia affiliated with the Palestinian political party Fatah – said the dead included one of its fighters, Izz al-Din Salahat.

According to the health ministry, another person, Saeb Azriqi, 24, succumbed to his injuries in a hospital.

It said the situation on the ground was very difficult, with injured people continuously reaching hospitals, as it accused Israeli forces of obstructing ambulances and medics.

“There is an invasion that is unprecedented … in terms of how large it is and the number of injuries,” Wissam Baker, head of Jenin public hospital, told Al Jazeera.

“The ambulance driver tried to get to one of the martyrs who was on the floor, but the Israeli forces shot directly at the ambulance and prevented them from approaching him,” Baker continued.

Israeli forces also fired tear gas canisters towards the hospital, affecting the children’s division, Baker said. It caused suffocation injuries to children and others, he said.

Israel’s army denied deliberately firing tear gas at the hospital. “No one shot tear gas on purpose at a hospital,” an army spokesman said. “But the activity was not far away from the hospital and it is possible some tear gar entered through an open window.”

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesman for the Palestinian Authority, has announced that the authority would halt the security coordination with Israel in the wake of the West Bank killing.

“As of now it will not be enforced,” he told a press conference in Ramallah, adding that the move was in response to repeated aggressions against Palestinians and violation of the international law by Israel.

“We salute those standing steadfast defending our homeland,” the spokesman said.

He also called for an International Criminal Court Investigation into Thursday’s killings.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas declared a third-day mourning period, during which flags would be flown at half mast, the official Palestinian TV reported.

PM Shtayyeh seeks UN intervention
Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh released a statement calling on the United Nations and all international human rights organisations to “intervene urgently to provide protection for Palestinian people and stop the bloodshed of children, youth and women”.

Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry condemned the Israeli raid on Jenin and called on the international community to stop Israel’s escalating aggression, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Saleh al-Arouri, a prominent leader of the Hamas movement governing the blockaded Gaza Strip, said the “response of the resistance will not be delayed”.

Al Jazeera’s Youmna el-Sayed, reporting from Gaza, said Palestinian factions, including Hamas, announced a day of mourning and declared a state of alert.

“They called on the international community to hold the ‘occupation criminals’ accountable for their crimes and finally called out on the people in Gaza to go out in the streets and show their rage against the massacre committed in Jenin,” el-Sayed said.

Twitter suspends Israeli MK over calling to kill Palestinians

January 28, 2023

Occupied Palestine (In Palestine Today)- A far-right Israeli lawmaker has been suspended from Twitter after tweeting his support for a deadly raid by regime forces and urging them to “keep killing them.”

Far-right Almog Cohen of the Otzma Yehudit party tweeted: “Nice and professional work by the fighters in Jenin, keep killing them.”

Cohen was reacting to an incursion on Thursday in which Nine Palestinians lost their lives following a raid on the Jenin refugee camp in the northern part of the West Bank. At least 20 Palestinians were wounded, including unarmed civilians.

After widespread condemnation from online users, the post was removed for “violating Twitter’s rules.”

Cohen, who has been a member of parliament since the Nov. 1 election, worked for the Israeli police for 11 years as part of a SWAT team. He founded an armed militia to stalk the Palestinians in the Naqab in May last year.

In October last year, Cohen published a photo of himself in the military kneeling over a Palestinian father and his two sons, with the caption “Those down there remember what I did in the army.” The sadistic caption was accompanied by a winking emoji.

In 2013, the three Palestinians testified that officers tied them up and threatened to shoot them in the head. No disciplinary action was taken against any of the police officers.

The image, however, helped the three men identify Cohen as one of the officers who attacked them and ask the Justice Department to reopen the case.

He is not the first far-right Israeli official to celebrate the killing of Palestinians. Back in December, Israel’s new national security minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, hailed a soldier, who shot dead a Palestinian man, as a “hero,” describing the killing as “precise, swift and rigorous.”

Israeli forces killed more Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in 2022 than in any other year since the Second Intifada.

At least 220 people were killed in the attacks of the Zionist regime throughout the occupied territories in 2022, of which 48 were children.

The crackdown comes as since the start of 2023, Israeli forces have shot and killed around 30 Palestinians.

Most of the Israeli raids have focused on Nablus and Jenin, where regime forces have been trying to stifle a growing Palestinian resistance in the occupied cities.
