TDN World Desk: Israeli intelligence services threatened the Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, after raiding his house in occupied East Jerusalem.

Sheikh Ekrima Sabri recieved the threat after he said to re-open Al-Aqsa Mosque’s doors if occupation forces allowed settlers to storm the historic Muslim site.

Sheikh Sabri told Anadolu Agency: “Israeli intelligence forces came to my house and threatened me saying that they will hold me responsible for any tension in Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

“I told them that suspending the reception of worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque does not mean in any way that it is permissible to the settlers to enter it. Therefore, if the occupation police decide to open the Mughrabi Gate unilaterally to the settlers, then we will open the rest of the mosque’s doors to worshippers,” he added.

Sheikh Sabri said furhther that Israel should not be allowed to take advantage of the coronavirus pandemic and attempt to clamp new restrictions on Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Till tuesday Palestine witnessed 342 cases while death toll climbed to 3. due to the pandemic Al-Aqsa mosque remained closed.
