The Ministry also called on "Tel Aviv" to "refrain from any measures that would damage the sanctity of holy sites and put an end to attempts to change the historical and legal status quo."
The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) also strongly condemned Ben-Gvir's storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and considered what happened an "unprecedented provocation that threatens further confrontations" and condemned "the disregard for the demands to stop."
According to the MFA, the incursion "also legitimized further incursions and profanation of Al-Aqsa by extremist settlers, and even encouraged and protected them to commit the most heinous crimes and attacks against Al-Aqsa."
Earlier today, Israeli Police Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, protected by a large number of Israeli occupation forces (IOF), Al Mayadeen correspondent reported.
Ben-Gvir's storming of Al-Aqsa could trigger the battle early and put the resistance before a major confrontation, added Al Mayadeen's correspondent.

Following Hamas' warnings, Israeli media stated that Netanyahu had received messages from Egypt and the United Nations and stated that it would be very difficult to influence Hamas not to respond to such a move by Ben-Gvir.
Despite this, according to the Israeli news site Walla!, Netanyahu did not try to stop Ben-Gvir from storming Al-Aqsa hours after they discussed the case.
