Israeli occupation authorities, on Monday morning, banned Sheikh Najeh Bkeerat, deputy director of Muslim Endowments and Al-Aqsa Affairs, from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound for three consecutive months.

Bkeerat said, in a press statement, that Israeli intelligence services summoned him this morning and served hi, with a decision to deport him from the mosque for three months.

He pointed out that since 2003 until today, he has been deported from Al-Aqsa 21 times for a period of over seven years, adding: “In 2019, I was admitted into the mosque only for one week.”

The deputy director confirmed that the deportation aims at emptying the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound and displacing Palestinians from the occupied Palestinian capital of East Jerusalem.

“We’ll remain at the gates of Al-Aqsa and in Jerusalem, doing our role. The occupation will demise, and we’re staying because it’s our land and our right,” he added, according to Al Ray.
