Israel Isolates Beit Eksa Village for Over 10 Days
The Palestinian Authority and Hamas issued a warning, on Sunday, of Israeli plans to impose sovereignty on al Asqa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The PNN reports that Palestinian Minister for Religious Affairs, Mahmoud al-Habbash, told the Jerusalem Post that the only sovereignty over the site would be Palestinian. "This is the full right of the Arab, including Muslims and Christians." He went on to claim that Israel has plans to divide al Asqa Mosque, which he argues are efforts which won't succeed.
