Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir incited settlers to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem, while the presidency and Palestinian factions warned of “exploding the situation” and continuing “Israeli aggression against holy sites.”

Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir called for allowing settlers to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem around the clock, with the possibility of them praying there.

Ben Gvir said in a recent letter to right-wing Knesset members, on Tuesday, “The security cabinet must be convened immediately, to consider opening the Temple Mount (Al-Aqsa Mosque) to Jews 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with the possibility of worshiping there, and so on.”

Ben Gvir added in his letter, which was reported by the Israeli newspaper "Haaretz", "I strongly hope that the ministers of Religious Zionism (a party led by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich) and Likud (a party led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) in the security cabinet will support these moves even if they personally oppose the visit of Jews." To the Temple Mount,” he said.

For its part, the Palestinian presidency said on Tuesday that the continued settlers’ incursions into Islamic and Christian holy sites, especially in the city of Jerusalem, are “a provocation aimed at detonating the situation.”

Meanwhile, Palestinian factions warned against the continuation of these incursions, calling for “escalation of resistance in response to the Israeli aggression against holy sites.”

Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said in a warning statement: “These provocations by the Israeli occupation authorities and their settlers constitute a dangerous approach aimed at detonating the situation, which will lead to dangerous repercussions whose results no one can predict.”

He called on the world and the United States to "assume their responsibilities in stopping these irresponsible (Israeli) actions."

In turn, Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said in a statement, “The occupation preventing worshipers from reaching Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron is a new and dangerous escalation of the religious war on our sanctities everywhere.”

He added, "This aggressive behavior by the occupation is a blatant violation of all human laws and norms, and a disregard for the feelings of all Arabs and Muslims."

For its part, the Islamic Jihad Movement said in a separate statement: “The crimes and attacks committed by the enemy against our people stationed in the Al-Aqsa Mosque cannot go unanswered.”

As for the Palestinian Free Movement, it said in a statement: “The occupation’s emptying of Al-Aqsa Mosque and preventing worshipers from reaching it and the Ibrahimi Mosque is a dangerous continuation of the aggression against holy sites that imposes the importance of launching a broad popular revolution to confront the occupation’s plans.”

Earlier Tuesday, the Islamic Endowments Department in Jerusalem said in a statement that 506 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque in the morning, expecting an increase in numbers after the noon prayer.

During the past two days, hundreds of settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque in response to calls made by right-wing Israeli organizations on the occasion of the Jewish “Throne Day.”

The frequency of raids on Al-Aqsa usually increases during periods of Jewish holidays, and they take place in two periods, in the morning and after the noon prayer, with facilities and accompaniment from the Israeli police.

They beat her Israeli soldiers assaulted a Palestinian woman in the south of the West Bank

Israeli soldiers assaulted former Palestinian prisoner Ghadeer Al-Atrash, while she was passing by the site of confrontations between Palestinians and settlers in the southern West Bank, and she suffered bruises all over her body.

A video clip posted by activists on social media showed that Palestinian woman Ghadeer Al-Atrash (30 years old) was attacked by a number of Israeli soldiers in the city of Hebron in the southern West Bank.

On Monday, as the video shows, Al-Atrash was pushed by an Israeli female soldier, then kicked and beaten by a group of Israeli soldiers.

Al-Atrash told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday: “I was with my brother’s wife, and by chance we passed by a site where confrontations broke out between dozens of citizens and Israeli soldiers, and when I was passing near the army, I was pushed by a female soldier.”

She continued: “I defended myself and did not allow the female soldier to hit me again, which led to the intervention of a number of soldiers who kicked me, knocked me to the ground, and beat me.”

Al-Atrash indicated that she "suffered bruises all over her body," and expressed her "shock as a result of the incident," noting that she "did not understand what happened."

As of today (Tuesday), there has been no comment from the Israeli army on the incident.

Al-Atrash was a former prisoner, and spent 3 years in Israeli prisons.

The Israeli army stormed the city of Hebron, on Monday, to secure the settlers’ storming of an archaeological site to celebrate the Israeli Throne Day.

Sukkot (the last of the three Jewish holidays: Passover, the Weeks, and the Throne) began on September 29 and continues until October 6, and is linked to the memory of the Jews being lost in the Sinai desert and their dwelling under umbrellas and in tents.
