Israeli police remove banner of Al-Aqsa Mosque

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police removed a banner, on Tuesday, which was hung up on one of the walls of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem.

A Ma'an reporter said that that Israeli police, along with Israeli forces, removed a banner reading "49 years and the fire is still burning within us," referring to the anniversary of a fire set off inside the mosque, by Jewish extremist Denis Michael Rohan.

The banner was taken to the Israeli police station in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque. The third holiest site in Islam, it is also venerated as Judaism's most holy place, as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.
