Occupied Jerusalem, MINA – Head of Jerusalem’s Supreme Islamic Council, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, on Sunday warned of the consequences of the US president Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
During an event held in support of Jerusalem in al-Bi’na village in the northern 1948 occupied Palestine, Sabri stressed that if Israel attempted again to impose its sovereignty over al-Aqsa Mosque, the intifada would be more intense than the one that flared in July 2017 against the metal detectors installed at al-Aqsa gates, PIC reported.
“We are facing a great challenge, and this is an opportunity to unite to defend Jerusalem,” he said.
Sheikh Sabri said, praising the Arab and European masses who have supported Jerusalem over the past period against the US move and calling for more protests to force Trump to backtrack on his decision. (T/R04/RS5)
