The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said the new wave of Israeli crimes and aggression towards the al-Aqsa Mosque reveals the depth of Zionist panic over the formation of a modern Intifada (uprising) in Palestine, reaffirming its unwavering support for the Palestinian resistance.
In a statement released on Friday, the IRGC strongly condemned the Zionist regime’s intensified attacks against the Palestinian worshippers in al-Aqsa Mosque.
It said the new wave of the Israeli acts of aggression following the recent operations by the young and pious Palestinians against the Zionist regime indicates that the Zionists have been terrified at the formation of a modern Intifada, the advance in anti-Israeli struggle among the younger generation, and the promotion of the capabilities of the anti-Zionism resistance.
The IRGC also noted that the Israeli desecration of the holy mosque in al-Quds and the brutal attacks on defenseless worshippers is doomed to failure, won’t undermine the heroic uprising of the Intifada fighters, and will force the Zionists to face more serious nightmares and challenges.
Denouncing the muted response from the international human rights organizations and certain Arab governments, the statement underlined that the IRGC will remain as a main and strategic supporter of the Palestinian Intifada, will continue to support the Palestinian resistance and nation in a united front, and won’t allow Israel and the hegemony to downplay the issue of Palestine as the Islamic world’s top priority.
More than 150 Palestinian worshipers have been injured after Israeli forces stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of al-Quds.
The Palestinian news agency Ma’an said the violence broke out at dawn on Friday, when the occupation forces raided the mosque through the Moroccan Gate, also known as the Mughrabi Gate, randomly firing sound bombs and rubber bullets at the worshipers.
Media reports said the Israeli troops also attacked paramedics and press crews, chased them in the courtyards of the mosque, and beat a number of them.
