Over 240 Israeli illegal settlers on Sunday, 23 October, 2016, have entered the yards of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound even with the UNESCO announcing it a purely Islamic site. The settlers, going into the mosque in small groups and heavily guarded by special Israeli occupied forces, entered it from the Mughrabi gate. Right-wing Israeli organizations called by intensification of settler break-ins into Al-Aqsa, especially during Jewish holidays, to “confirm” the Jewishness of the place, especially after the UNESCO resolution, which called the proclaimed Temple Mount with its Islamic name, Al-Aqsa mosque and Al-Haram Al-Sharif.

 

According to Israeli narrative, the site is considered Judaism’s holiest site. In Islam, it counts as the first Qiblah (direction) and third holiest place. The initial vote was held one week ago, where 26 countries abstained from the vote, including Serbia and Turkmenistan, while 24 countries supported the initiative and six voted against it.

 

Meanwhile, Israeli Occupation Forces broke into the office of the committee against the wall and settlements in Hebron’s old city on Sunday, 23 October, 2016. Head of the committee, Younes Arar announced this on his Facebook page. The office is located in the center of the old city of Hebron, and monitors violations and crimes carried out against Palestinians by Israeli soldiers and settlers. The attack came since the committee had displayed photos showing their violence against Palestinian citizens and farmers in the area, and photos of minister Ziad Abu Ein, who was killed two years ago during a protest against the wall and settlements near Hebron when Israeli soldiers threw teargas grenades.
The committee had denounced the attack on the office, and called on holding Israel accountable for such systematic attacks on rights organizations
