In light of these developments, the Council of Islamic Endowments, Affairs and Holy Sites warned against igniting a religious conflict in the region and the world as a whole, following the meeting of the occupation government in the Al-Buraq Wall area, and the storming of Bin Ghafir to Al-Aqsa.
The Council said in a statement: “These developments are a clear and systematic escalatory message against the history and heritage of the occupied city of Jerusalem, the Arab and Islamic heritage, in reference to the occupation government holding its weekly meeting, in the tunnels of the Al-Buraq Wall under Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, for the first time in 6 years.”
For its part, the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, said: “The occupation government’s holding its weekly meeting in the tunnels of the Al-Buraq Wall in the occupied city of Jerusalem is a dangerous escalation of the religious war waged by the occupation against the Holy City.”
“These steps are an attempt to falsify the identity of the city of Jerusalem, which constitutes a flagrant aggression against our people and our nation. We hold the occupation fully responsible for the consequences of the extremist attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque,” it added.
The Islamic Jihad Movement affirmed that the policies of aggression in Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including incursions and provocations to the feelings of the peoples of the Arab and Islamic nation, and the holding of a meeting of the government of terrorism and extremism under the Al-Buraq Wall come in the context of the Zionist war against our land and our people.
The movement said in a statement, “The attempts of this government to regain control at the expense of our inalienable right to Jerusalem and every atom of Palestine will fail, and its continuation will turn things upside down,” stressing that the aggression in Jerusalem will change all calculations, and that confrontation It will escalate the resistance, and we are ready.”

Abu Zuhri added, in press statements today, Sunday, that “the storming of Ibn Ghufir is considered an example of the official sponsorship and participation of the occupation government in the Zionist incursions, which aim to impose more incidents inside the mosque, and to perform their rituals and rituals in the context of the policy of Judaization and the imposition of Jewish sovereignty over Al-Aqsa.”
He pointed out that “the continuation of the occupation government, through its fascist ministers and herds of settlers, to perpetuate the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque, will not succeed in changing the facts of matters, and our people will continue as they have always done to preserve their sanctities and defend them with everything they possess.”
Regarding the step required to protect Al-Aqsa, he indicated that it is “the involvement of all the sons of our Arab and Islamic nation in this confrontation.”
And he added, “If the West mobilized all its forces to protect Ukraine, then Jerusalem is more important for Muslims to mobilize for its sake, and the time has come for the occupation to realize that it is waging an open war with the entire nation, not the Palestinian people.”
Power condemns and coordinates
Munther al-Hayek, a spokesman for the Fatah movement, said: “The occupation government holding its meeting inside a tunnel under the Al-Buraq Wall will not change the historical and religious reality of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Palestine.”

Whereas, a few days ago, Hebrew sources announced preparations for a security-political meeting between the authority and the occupation.
And the Hebrew public radio revealed that the preparations are taking place under US regional auspices, similar to the “Aqaba” and “Sharm El-Sheikh” meetings that were held recently.
The report suggested that the meeting might be held in the Egyptian city of Sharm el-Sheikh, while noting that a date for its convening had not been set, despite the advanced contacts and continuous discussions in this regard.

She said, “The meeting will be considered a continuation of the meetings in Aqaba and Sharm el-Sheikh, which were held during the past February and March, during which understandings were reached” about moving immediately to end unilateral measures.
The United States pushed for the organization of two meetings in “Aqaba and Sharm el-Sheikh” in an attempt to calm the security escalation that has been going on for months.
It is indicated that Maariv newspaper said: “The government of Benjamin Netanyahu held a ceremonial meeting on the occasion of the 56th anniversary of the occupation and annexation of East Jerusalem, in Al-Buraq tunnels, 6 years after it did so in 2017. These tunnels are located under the Western Wall of the Temple Mount, and extend along its length to Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
For his part, Netanyahu said at the start of the government meeting, “56 years ago, in the Six-Day War, June 5, 1967, we united the city (Jerusalem), but the struggle for its unity has not ended yet.”
He added, “The work is not finished and the challenge is still ahead of us, because there are still those who want to divide it openly. For the sake of our security and the unity of Jerusalem, we must continue to preserve this government.”
Netanyahu heads a government that includes parties from the religious and national far-right, which officially assumed its duties in late December.
The occupation government approved adding 60 million shekels (about 17 million dollars) to the budget for digging tunnels under the Al-Buraq Wall and the Old City.
