Official Spokesperson for Palestinian Presidency Nabil Abu Rudeineh said Wednesday that the Israeli occupation authorities are dragging the region into violence, escalation, tension and instability, through its insistence on continuing the policy of collective punishment, killing and attacks on the blessed Al Aqsa Mosque, in addition to Israeli settlers’ non-stop terrorism against Palestinian people under protection of the Israeli occupation army.
The storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and raising the occupation flag in its courtyards by extremist settlers as well as storming of the Bab Al Rahma chapel and damaging its power grids by Israeli Occupation forces confirms that the extremist Israeli government is looking for ways to escalate the situation, Abu Rudeineh added in a statement, holding it responsible for these grave policies seeking to destroy any regional or international effort to provide stability and prevent the deterioration of the situation.
He stressed that the Palestinian people will not allow the occupation authorities to harm or tamper with the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, slamming the repeated attacks on the Bab Al Rahma chapel, an integral part of Al Aqsa Mosque, as playing with fire.
Abu Rudeineh lambasted the siege imposed on Palestinian cities as well as storming of cities, villages and camps as collective punishment against Palestinians, warning that this policy will push the region to further escalation and tension.
