PRAYERS AND WORSHIPPERS ATTACKED AT AL-AQSA
The Jewish military state’s pretext for severely limiting access to the al-Aqsa compound is that Palestinians “intend to start riots.” But the Waqf is the authority over the compound, not Jewish military state, so whenever the military state attempts to usurp authority and take control there, it is the same as a dog ‘marking its territory’ in that it is so frustrated with failure at subduing Palestinian resistance that it wants to show, by force, that it is ‘in control’ and can ‘take’ the holy site at will. So attacking worshippers at the al-Aqsa compound is an act of violence and provocation to the worshippers there since Jewish soldiers and police are not supposed to be there in the first place, and in the second, only show up to attack, maim, injure and kill.
