Al-Aqsa to be Converted into a Park by Israelis
The Jerusalem municipality has issued a decision to convert al-Aqsa mosque’s yards into public parks and gardens that would be open to the general public, according to Sheikh Kamal al-Khatib, deputy head of the Islamic Movement in occupied lands.
On Tuesday, the Palestine News Network reported on a press release issued by al-Khatib stating that this was part of an effort by the Israeli authorities to erase the history of Palestinians in Jerusalem and end Muslim control of their own holy sites.
