  • Hamas warns Zionist entity of consequences over al-Aqsa Mosque attacks

The Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, has warned the illegal Zionist entity of the consequences of its further encroachment on the al-Aqsa Mosque al-Quds.

According to reports, Hamas made the remarks in an official statement on Thursday that marks Arafah Day. It called on Palestinians to rally in mass towards the al-Aqsa Mosque.

The statement stressed that al-Aqsa is holy for the Palestinians, and that they will not remain silent on Israeli violations against the site. Hamas said the Zionist regime should pay a heavy price if it keeps on such violations.

The movement condemned Israeli regime for continued persecution of the people of al-Quds, demolishing their homes and imposing exorbitant taxes on them to force them to leave the holy city.

The Palestinian movement also called on the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prevent the Zionist regime from destroying the homes of Palestinians and Judaizing al-Quds.

Illegal Zionist settlers have frequently stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in al-Quds under the protection of regime forces.

Last year in October, Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas’ Political Bureau, said the Israeli regime’s Judaization plans in al-Quds would never succeed.
