Abbas: Israelis have no right to desecrate our holy sites with their filthy feet
Palestinian leader’s comments come amid the violence at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount over the past few days.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday that the Palestinians wouldn’t allow Israelis to “desecrate” Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.
Referring to the tensions surrounding visits by Jews to the Temple Mount, Abbas said: “Al-Aksa is ours and so is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. They have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet. We won’t allow them to do so and we will do whatever we can to defend Jerusalem.”
Abbas was speaking in his office in Ramallah during a meeting with east Jerusalem activists.
