Israeli occupation bans Imam of al-Aqsa Mosque from entering it for four months

 OCCUPIED AL-QUDS, (ST)- Israeli occupation forces  early on Saturday broke into the house of Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, Imam of al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied al-Quds and handed him a notice banning him from entering the mosque for a period of four months.

In a statement to Maan news agency, Shiekh Sabri reiterated that such aggressive practices by the Israeli occupation aim at silencing the voices that speak up against the violations committed by the occupation against al-Aqsa Mosque in implementation of its plan to judaize it.

 According to Wafa news agency, the occupation forces summoned Sabri for interrogation at "Qashla" center, in the occupied city of al-Quds.

This came after the Imam defied an Israeli order banning him from entering the mosque for a period of a week, a ban which might be renewed.

The Imam entered the al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday to perform Friday prayers while being carried on the shoulders of worshipers.
