OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Hundreds of Israeli occupation soldiers and policemen were deployed since the early morning hours of Saturday in the vicinity of the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
Najeh Bukairat, the head of the manuscripts and heritage in the Aqsa mosque, said that the soldiers were deployed near the Maghareba gate apparently to block entrance of worshippers to the mosque on Sunday when Israeli officials are planning to storm its plazas.
He told Quds Press that hundreds of border policemen and police forces were pouring into the vicinity of the mosque since the early morning hours, calling on Palestinians to flock to the holy site starting with dawn prayers on Sunday.
Bukairat said that Likud party leaders have vowed to storm the Aqsa mosque on Sunday to perform Talmudic rituals.
He addressed calls to Muslims worldwide, saying that the Aqsa is in real danger and the Israeli occupation authority is adamant on storming the site to build the alleged temple.
