Waqf: We have lost control over the Temple Mount
Waqf protests Israeli decision to close Temple Mount in wake of Friday’s terror attack during which two Border Policemen murdered.
In its announcement, it said that the entire Al-Aqsa Mosque compound was a Muslim right only and all actions taken by Israel were a blatant violation of this right.
The Waqf Department demanded that the Al-Aqsa Mosque be opened immediately and that Muslims be permitted to hold religious worship there without any restrictions.
It accused Israel of “breaking into” the Al-Aqsa Mosque without the presence of Waqf members, calling the Israeli action “aggression against the faith and history of the Islamic nation.”
