It Is the Terrorist Organizations Who Endangered Muslim and Jewish Worshippers in Jerusalem

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Minister of Foreign Affairs Yair Lapid said Sunday: "In the past three weeks...during Ramadan, terrorist organizations have been trying to hijack the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to create an outbreak of violence in Jerusalem, and from there, a violent conflict across the country. Hamas and Islamic Jihad extremists burst into Al-Aqsa Mosque in the early mornings, again and again. They brought weapons into the mosque. They threw rocks and explosives from within it, and used it as a base to incite violent riots. It is not Israel that endangered worshippers - it is the terrorist organizations who endangered them." "We have no plans to divide the Temple Mount between religions. We call on Muslim moderates, on Muslim states, to act against this fake news....During Ramadan, Israel ensured that hundreds of thousands of Muslims could go to the Temple Mount and pray at Al-Aqsa....Despite attempts to stoke violence, we have done and continue to do everything to enable peaceful prayer."
