Khatib: we will not succumb to the Israeli measures

Islamic Awqaf about metal detectors al-Aqsa Mosque

Director-general of the Islamic Awqaf in Jerusalem, Azzam al-Khatib, confirmed on Monday his support for the decision of the Islamic bodies in the city not to enter al-Aqsa Mosque via the metal detectors set up at its gates by the Israeli authorities.

Khatib said in a televised statement, “This is our mosque and we will not succumb to any pressures aimed at changing the status quo there.”

For the second day in a row, Palestinians continue their sit-ins at the gates of al-Aqsa Mosque, refusing to enter the Mosque through the metal detectors erected by the Israeli authorities on Sunday.
