Sheikh Akrama Sabri, the imam of Al-Aqsa, has called on Palestinians to go temple complex on Tuesday to defend it from the settlers.

He told Al-Ghad, the Jordanian daily newspaper: "There is no other way to stand up to the settlers and foil their aggressive plans except for Muslims to go and stay at Al-Aqsa and defend and protect it.

"Raids by the settlers now take place on a daily basis. They are intended to impose a new reality on the holy mosque and drive Palestinians to despair."

Sabri blamed the right-wing Israeli government for protecting extremists, taking advantage of the difficult Arab situation and conflicts in the region to carry on with its aggressive plans against the Palestinian people. He called on Arab and Muslim countries to shoulder their responsibilities by supporting the Palestinian people against the occupation.
