FPJ slams Israeli journalists for defiling Aqsa Mosque

GAZA, (PIC)-- The forum of Palestinian journalists (FPJ) strongly denounced the desecration of the Aqsa Mosque by a group of Israeli journalists on Thursday.

In a press release on Friday, the forum said that extremist Jewish journalists working for Israel's TV channels 1, 2 and 10, the newspapers Maariv and Israel Today, and the Hebrew news website Walla had defiled the Aqsa Mosque's courtyard under police guard.

An Israeli archeologist escorted the journalists during their tour at the Aqsa Mosque.

Maariv newspaper posted a news report about the tour on its website under the headline "Religious journalists occupy the Aqsa Mosque."

The forum emphasized that such visit was part of the Israeli plans to Judaize the Aqsa Mosque and divide it between Muslims and Jews as a prelude to seizing it.

It added that what happened showed that the Israeli media and its workers are reserve soldiers of the Israeli occupation army implementing its agendas against the Palestinian people and their holy sites.
