AMMAN — The Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan urged the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs to provide all means of support to people who are “steadfast” in their defense of the Old City and Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to Amman Net.اضافة اعلان

Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson Muath Khawaldeh said “we have been provided by the media with an audio recording of the director of Al-Aqsa Mosque Omar Al-Kiswani asking worshippers to move to other mosques, instead of Al-Aqsa, until (April 21), at a time when Zionist extremists declared their intention to storm and desecrate the mosque in the coming days, to celebrate their holiday”.

Khawaldeh added: “We demand an immediate reversal of the decision to prevent worshipers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque from retreating from there, since this is the most successful way to confront the radical Zionist groups that desecrate the complex.”

He asked the Ministry of Awqaf to carry out its duty and “facilitate whatever contributes to supporting the worshippers remain steadfast at Al-Aqsa Mosque”.

Far-right Jewish groups have been making public calls for a wide-ranging breach of Al-Aqsa on April 15 to mark the Jewish Passover. With heightened tension in the occupied Palestinian territories, such a breach, which coincides with the second Friday in Ramadan, could trigger mass violence.

On Monday, dozens of fanatic Jews stormed Al-Aqsa complex under police protection. Since the advent of Ramadan, such incidents have increased noticeably.

The Jordanian government has repeatedly denounced such incursions which violate the status quo agreement on Al-Aqsa complex.
