Three Palestinian resistance groups warned Sunday of Israeli constructions beneath the Al-Aqsa mosque in the occupied east Jerusalem, vowing they would heighten resistance against the Israeli occupation.
The three groups were identified as the An-Nasser Salaheldin Brigades, the Al-Aqsa Brigades and the Mujahideen Brigades. They vowed that they would retaliate to the action Israel is taking beneath the Al-Aqsa mosque in preperation for building a synagogue on the Palestinian-owned land.

Spokesman of the Salaheldin Brigades, Abu Mojahed, said in a press conference in Gaza ā€œharming the Al-Aqsa Mosque would mean harming the Muslim nation, therefore retaliation to Israeli actions there would not be limited to specific boundariesā€.

Abu Mojahed called on all Islamic countries and organizations to intervene immediately to prevent the destruction of the ā€˜Islamic heritageā€™ in the holy city of Jerusalem.

Israeli authorities in the occupied east Jerusalem recently commenced construction works beneath the Al-Aqsa mosque of Jerusalem, believed to be foundations for a Jewish synagogue. Such constructions have cast concerns for almost 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide that the mosque, considered to be the third holiest site in Islam, would collapse.

In a related action, the Israeli authorities also bar access of Palestinians of less than 45 years of age from entering the Al-Aqsa mosque compound.
