Israeli government signals go-ahead to ministers’ break-ins at Aqsa

The Israeli government signaled the go-ahead to a bid to allow members of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) to storm holy al-Aqsa Mosque, in Occupied Jerusalem.

The Israeli Channel 7 said a ban maintained for one year and half was lifted so as to allow Israeli MKs and ministers to defile al-Aqsa as of next week.

Last February the Ethics Committee at the Knesset cancelled instructions banning MKs from entering the site.

On October 8, 2015, the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu ruled that Arab and Israeli MKs be banned from al-Aqsa Mosque until further notice so as to tone down soaring tension.
