Minister of Awqaf Mohammed Khalayleh, who attended the discussions, said that since 1967, the last 10 days of Ramadan are spent by the faithful in spirituality, reading the Quran, so there is no political reason for Al-Aqsa Mosque to be closed and deprive those who wish to remain steadfast in its their defence of this right.

“His Majesty has led a sustained diplomatic effort to prevent any harassment that denies worshippers access to Al-Aqsa Mosque, however, on Jewish holidays and occasions, incidents of harassment usually increase,” Khalayleh said.

Jerusalem Department of Awqaf officials encouraged worshippers to remain steadfast at Al-Aqsa Mosque, to face extremists who will use any pretext to violate it sanctity.
