The Shin Bet, Israel’s internal intelligence agency, last Tuesday summoned Sheikh Ra’ed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands, and his deputy Sheikh Kamal al-Khatib and interrogated them over issues related to the Aqsa Mosque and their banned organization.
Sheikh Khatib, who is also a senior official of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Affairs, told Quds Press that he and Sheikh Salah received a summons ordering them to go to the police station in Nazareth city for an interview with the officer in charge.
Sheikh Khatib described their interrogation as part of the political persecution policy that has been pursued by Israel against the Islamic Movement before and after banning its activities in November 2015.
“I was questioned about the slogan “Al-Aqsa in Danger” and I said that al-Aqsa Mosque has always been endangered and targeted by the policies of Netanyahu’s right-wing government,” he said.
He also affirmed to the Israeli officer that the Aqsa Mosque is an Islamic holy site belonging exclusively to the Muslims and that the Palestinian people would never recognize Israel’s measures against it.
