The channel stated, "There are no restrictions on the entry of Palestinians from the 1948 territories and Jerusalem into Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan."

On Wednesday, the channel also quoted Israeli occupation police officials stating that the restrictions imposed to limit Palestinian entry to Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan could "Ignite Jerusalem and other cities."

Notably, Ben Gvir aimed at preventing Palestinians from the West Bank and inside the occupied 1948 territories from entering Jerusalem to pray at Al-Aqsa during Ramadan, coinciding with the continuation of the war on Gaza since October 7.

Following that, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu agreed to restrict the entry of Palestinians from inside who are under 50 years old to Al-Aqsa during Ramadan.

In response, Hamas stated that, "Violating the freedom of worship in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque indicates the occupation's intention to escalate its aggression on the Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan."
