Israel to restrict Muslim access to Al-Aqsa during Ramadan

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has reportedly agreed to a plan to put a curb on Palestinians entering into Al-Aqsa Mosque during the holy month of Ramadan.

The plan was presented by Minister of Internal Security of the Israeli regime Itamar Ben-Gvir and was approved by Netanyahu, Al Jazeera cited a news from the Zionist regime's Channel 13. 

The Netanyahu administration will make an official decision on this issue in the coming days, the broadcaster however claimed.

The far-right extremist politician and a member of the coalition cabinet presented the controversial plan against Al-Aqsa Mosque despite warnings from Israel’s internal spy agency; Shin Bet that such decision could cause more "dangerous" disruption than the eruption of tensions in East Jerusalem al-Quds. 

With less than a month before the arrival of Ramadan, the Zionist media revealed that Ben-Gvir asked Netanyahu's cabinet to allow only people over 70 years old living in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds  and the 1948 territories to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque during the holy month.

According to this plan, residents of other parts of the occupied West Bank cannot be able to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site. 

Since the beginning of Israel’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip, the regime’s forces have restricted Palestinian Muslims' access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, particularly on Fridays.

Last Friday, despite Israeli restrictions, approximately 25,000 people were able to enter the mosque to perform Friday prayers for the first time in more than 4 months.
