OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, The Israeli occupation refused to allow the Islamic Awqaf department in Jerusalem to renovate Al-Khatouneyya school which is considered part of the main building of the Aqsa Mosque.
Sheikh Muhammad Husain, imam of the Aqsa Mosque said that the Israeli occupation authorities stopped workers last Tuesday from carrying out renovation work on the building in an attempt to interfere in the affairs of Islamic holy places topped by the Aqsa Mosque and described such an interference as serious, warning of the serious consequences of such interference.
Husain stressed that Muslims are entitled to maintain the Aqsa Mosque and no one else is entitled to interfere in its affairs.
He added that while the Israeli occupation hampers maintenance work at the Aqsa Mosque it allows extremist Jewish groups to dig tunnels under it.
