Palestinian resistance factions have issued stern warnings about the ongoing raids on the Muslim holy site
On 17 May, the leader of Jewish supremacist group Lahava issued a call to action to “demolish” Al-Aqsa Mosque for those participating in the upcoming “flag march,” set to take place on 28 May. Lahava leader Bentzi Gopstein posted an image on his social media page depicting a bulldozer next to the Dome of the Rock mosque, one of the two mosques situated in the Al-Aqsa compound. “We will come to demolish the Dome of the Rock,” the caption of his post read.
Their alleged goal is to replace the Al-Aqsa Mosque with a third Jewish temple, desecrating the third holiest site for Muslims across the world. Lahava believes that all Arabs should be expelled from the lands of historic Palestine. During the month of Ramadan in 2021, the extremist group called for violent confrontation with Arabs in occupied Jerusalem. The Palestinian and regional resistance groups have consistently warned that any existential threat to the Al-Aqsa Mosque would lead to a major battle that will quickly turn into a regional war.
