GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian government in Gaza has called on all Arab, Islamic, and international organizations to check the Israeli occupation authority’s tampering with the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.

The foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday that the Israeli decision declaring all Aqsa courtyards as public parks aimed to allow Jews free access into the holy compound at any time.

It said that the “malicious” decision provoked the feelings of Muslims worldwide who regard the Aqsa as one of their holiest shrines.

The statement pointed out that the decision fell in line with the IOA feverish attempts to Judaize the Aqsa after years of diggings and excavations underneath it that threaten its foundations.
