Writer Shawqi Shahir says in an article with the 35th anniversary of burning the Aqsa Mosque at the hands of Zionists, leaders of the Zionist entity confirm that the Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock may be exposed to a suicidal attack, using an airplane. This is not the first or the last step in the Zionists endeavour to destroy the features of the holy city for the three heavenly religions and were preceded by many attempts since after the 1967 war that resulted in the occupation of the eastern part of Al-Quds and the West bank.
The stages of demolishing the Aqsa and their plots have been disclosed in an academic report published by Contemporary Studies Centre in Um al-Fahm in Palestine. The report disclosed that the occupation authorities have finished ten phases on the way of demolishing the Aqsa and building the Temple.
The report says the Israeli diggings under courtyards of the Aqsa mosque and Islamic endowments in the old city of Jerusalem are the moat dangerous ways that have been adopted for undermining the pillars of the mosque, demolishing and effacing its features.
