SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) –Ihab Al-Ghussain, the Gaza government spokesman, has denounced Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu for desecrating the Buraq plaza at the Aqsa mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
Ghussain said in a press release on Tuesday that the “visit” by Netanyahu to the Buraq plaza was aimed at winning Israeli votes by provoking Arab and Muslim feelings and desecrating their holy shrines.
He said that Israeli leaders were wagering on more extremism against Palestinians in order to win more votes.
Ghussain championed a revolt in the West Bank against such repeated provocations, and asked the Arab and Islamic countries to bridle the Israeli occupation government.
Israeli general elections started on Tuesday to elect 120 new members to the Knesset or parliament.
Former Israeli premier Ariel Sharon’s provocative visit to the Aqsa mosque in 2000 triggered the Aqsa intifada that went on for years.www.shfaqna.com/English
