OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Mordechai Eugev, a member of the Israeli Knesset, called on his government to build a synagogue in the Aqsa mosque’s southern area.

The Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said in a press release on Wednesday that the Israeli escalation against the Aqsa mosque was ongoing, the latest being an article by MP Eugev, a member of the fanatic party Habayit Hayehudi, that called for building a synagogue inside it.

The statement coincided with the distribution of a detailed map of the alleged temple by Jewish settlers during their storming of the Aqsa mosque.

Sheikh Kamal Al-Khatib, deputy leader of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, described the recent storming of the Aqsa as “unprecedented” as far as the quantity and proximity of storming days are concerned.

Khatib warned that the Knesset speaker and members’ calls for more such storming were part of new political drive to create a new de facto situation in the holy site.
