Leaflets calling for demolition of al-Aqsa distributed in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – An extremist Jewish organization on Thursday disseminated leaflets in the Old City of Jerusalem calling for the demolition of the al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian residents said.

The residents told Ma’an that as they left their homes in the morning they found thousands of leaflets in Hebrew scattered in all roads and alleys including the alleys leading to al-Aqsa Mosque.

The leaflets were signed by an extremist Israeli organization called “Going back to the (Temple) Mount”.

“In respect of the Jerusalem Day, let’s all ask the government of Israel to tear down all mosques on Temple Mount in order to be able to rebuild Beit Hamikdash (the Holy Temple) and renew sacrifice works,” the leaflet reads.
