OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The higher Islamic committee and the Awqaf and Islamic affairs council in occupied Jerusalem strongly denounced the Israeli police for allowing themselves to remove trees from the Aqsa Mosque's plazas last Thursday, describing what happened as an infringement on jurisdiction.

"The plazas are an integral part of the holy Aqsa Mosque and the uprooting of trees the day before yesterday by the occupation police is unacceptable, reprehensible and an assault on the Aqsa Mosque," the higher committee the Awqaf council stated on Saturday.
 
"The maintenance and Islamic waqf committee of the Aqsa Mosque is the one authorized to make repairs, plant trees and do other things without permission from the Israeli police which have no authority or jurisdiction over the management of the Aqsa Mosque," they emphasized.

The higher committee and the Awqaf council also urged the Jordanian government to assume its religious responsibilities towards the Aqsa Mosque and intervene to stop the Israeli regime from violating its sanctity.
