Al-Quds, MINA – The Waqf Agency in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Tuesday said that the Ar-Rahmah Gate at the Al-Aqsa Mosque would remain open and be renovated in the next two days.
The Affirmation of the Waqf Agency is a rejection of the deadline set by the Israeli occupation court so that the Ar-Rahmah Gate closed within a week. If it is not, a decision will be issued to close it, Palinfo reported.
The Members of the Waqf Board, Hatem Abdul Qader, said it was holding an emergency meeting to discuss developments around the Ar-Rahmah Gate and the closure by Israel.
The meeting emphasized the old attitude of the Waqf Board not to recognize Israeli courts, because it refused the Israeli occupation police mandate at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In addition, his side also refused to deal with the Israeli police’s decision to close the Ar-Rahmah Gate.
He explained that the Waqf Agency had begun communication with Jordan at all political levels to activate Arab and international pressure to stop the Israeli occupiers’ grip on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In addition to rejecting the closure of the Ar-Rahmah Gate, the Waqf Agency is also in the process of taking steps aimed at renovating the site, which will take months. Starting from the renovation of stone, technical, electrical and mechanical that maintains the history of the place. (T/Sj/P2)
