Right-wing Israeli flies drone above Al-Aqsa

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A right-wing Jewish Israeli on Sunday took photos of the Al-Aqsa Mosque using a small drone with cameras that he flew from the cemetery near the Golden Gate.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that the man focused the drone's camera on the Dome of the Rock.

They added that they saw the man directing his drone and cameras remotely, from just outside the Old City near the Al-Aqsa compound.

After the guards of Al-Aqsa noticed the drone, they called Israeli police who arrived and detained the settler.

Director of the Jerusalem office of the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Endowment Sheikh Azzam al-Kahtib called upon Israeli police to immediately investigate the incident as such behavior, he said, poses real threats to the Al-Aqsa Mosque.



Some right-wing Jewish groups call for the destruction of the Al-Aqsa mosque and the construction of a Jewish temple there, and recent calls for the extension of Israel sovereignty over the compound -- which is maintained by an Islamic trust under Jordanian oversight -- have inflamed tensions.

The Al-Aqsa compound sits just above the Western Wall plaza and houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque, and is 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. The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.

Al-Aqsa is located in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Israel rears it's ugly head again. Just goes to show the lies we are forced fed about the so called temple. The wailing wall itself is a remnant of a roman fortress. God will protect Al Aqsa but who will protect Israel when it's time of reckoning comes. Justice will prevail and the imposter unholy state of Israel will fall

Model Airplane with camera threatens to destroy Al Aqsa Mosque. Let's you know that the Waqf is truly a paranoid organization.

And Jordan still remains silent. Surely they haven't abrogated all of their responsibilities to the Palestinians. Murder of a Judge, constant humiliation of worshipers at Al Aqsa as well as barring many from praying there doesn't seem to inspire more than a meek salutory objection. What or whom are they afraid of?

Besides Palestinian/regional Muslims,Christians,Atheists,historians & pluralistic people worldwide,who should be VERY alarmed by the implications of this, those who should be EXTREMELY alarmed,are ISRAELI JEWS,on all class-rungs of Israel's ladder,&globally! USG set a dangerous example by Drone carpet/area"precision"bombing,'precisely'bombing WHOLE families/villages.So,anyone worried re:terrorists using drone-missiles,should also worry about messianic Israeli radicals,who would destroy ALL!

#6: Not nice Miskeen, we must ask Allah for good things, not ask Him to harm people. Nothing is harmed by Allah, humans cause the harm.

Incitement is just the beginning. Whether they are walking about Al Aqsa or buzzing it with (currently) unarmed drones the ultimate goal is to dispossess the Palestinians from their land and their culture.

#3 "Model Airplane with camera threatens to destroy Al Aqsa Mosque. Let's you know that the Waqf is truly a paranoid organization." Yeah, just imagine the laid-back Israeli response to a "model airplane with camera" being flown remotely over the Kotel (or Knesset) operated by an Arab. Iron Dome would be rolled out and the guy would be dead. ("Airplane"??? You are SO American, Brian.)

#3 "Let's you know that the Waqf is a truly a paranoid organization." Brian, violent nutters call for the razing of the "abominations" and the rebuilding of the Temple. Extremists in the Knesset are lobbying for it to be annexed. Obnoxious characters like Moshe Feiglin and Rabbi Glick invade it contemptuously with armed guards and scruffy settlers traipsing around the holy place. Do you really think it's paranoia that the Waqf and Palestinians in general perceive a threat to the Haram ash-Sharif
