Al Aqsa Mosque Israeli Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir Visit Al Aqsa Mosque Increased Tension Muslim Countries Condemned

Al-Aqsa Mosque: Israel’s National Security Minister and right-wing leader Itamar Ben-Gvir visited the Al-Aqsa mosque compound on Tuesday despite warnings of violence. Palestine has called Ben-Gvir’s visit a deliberate provocation and strongly condemned it. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina. It is on top of a hill which is also the holiest site for the Jews. The dispute regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque is very old.

Ben Gvir said after the tour that he “will not surrender to threats from Hamas”. In fact, after Ben Gavir’s visit to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestine warned him that he was crossing the Red Line. At the same time, in the midst of the Al-Aqsa Mosque dispute, UAE and China have requested a meeting of the United Nations Security Council in view of the recent developments.

Tour inciting violence and inciting riots – Palestine
The Foreign Ministry of Palestine termed Ben Gvir an extremist and condemned the visit to Al-Aqsa Mosque. The ministry described this tour as inciting violence and inciting riots. This is the first time in the last 5 years that an Israeli minister has given a challenge to Palestine, the Arab nation and the international community by visiting the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Muslim countries strongly condemned
At the same time, Muslim countries have strongly condemned this tour. Jordan summoned the Israeli ambassador in Amman and strongly warned Israel to stop all such violations immediately. Jordan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Sinan Majli said in a statement, “Visiting the Al-Aqsa Mosque by an Israeli minister and violating the sanctity of the mosque is a reprehensible and provocative action.” This is a violation of international law. The foreign ministries of Egypt and Lebanon have also opposed Ben-Gvir’s visit to the Al-Aqsa compound.

It is to be known that the area where the Al-Aqsa Mosque is situated has been completely controlled by Israel and the citizens of Palestine can reach there only under Israel’s supervision. Ben-Gvir wrote on Twitter after his visit that the site is open to all and if Hamas thinks it will intimidate me with its threats, it should understand that times have changed.
