The institution, which issued a statement on Wednesday, stated that the Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall is an integral part of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and is dedicated to prayer and worship.

It added that the repeated attacks by Israeli occupation forces aim to prevent prayer and to close it down again.

Agression is ‘deliberate, insidious’The statement further revealed that the Israeli occupation forces had renewed the decision to close the Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall, prior to the month of Ramadan, based on court decisions in response to the demands of "Temple organizations" as part of the government's compliance.

The institution considered the aggression against Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall to be insidious and deliberate, as Israel wanted to start it immediately after the end of the month of Ramadan, taking advantage of the preoccupation of worshippers and guardians with Eid Al-Fitr.

Support for Islamic Waqf Council in JerusalemThe QII expressed its full support for the Islamic Waqf Council in Jerusalem in preserving Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall open for worshippers and guardians at all times of the year.

The statement emphasized that the aggression against Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall was a deliberate attempt to spatially divide the mosque, which would lead to further unrest and tension in the region.

Recent attacksSince Eid Al-Fitr, Israeli occupation forces have resumed targeting Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall east of Al-Aqsa Mosque with aggression.

On the second day of Eid, they completely destroyed its electricity network, smashed lighting units, speakers, and fans, and seized the wooden partitions between men and women.

Guardian members present at the mosque responded to these attacks by immediately repairing the damage, and the Waqf Council responded with a statement affirming that Bab Al-Rahma prayer hall is an integral part of Al-Aqsa Mosque and will remain open for prayer.
