Israeli regime has reportedly planned to divide the time and space at holy al-Aqsa compound between Muslims and Jews, international media reported.

The regime’s Knesset member Amit Halevi of the right-wing Likud Party has devised a plot aimed at dividing the holy mosque between the vast majority of Muslims who reside in al-Quds, and extremist Zionist settlers that claim the right to “pray” at the compound, the Arabic-language al-Ayyam daily newspaper reported on Thursday.

The Ramallah-based daily further unveiled that Halevi has also called for allocating the southern part of the compound to Muslims, while reserving the central and northern parts that includes the holy Dome of the Rock for the radical Zionists.

The Zionist politician has also boasted that his scheme is aimed at taking away the Jordanian government’s custodianship of the al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Ramallah-based Al-Hayat al-Jadida daily also cited the Palestinian Ministry of al-Quds Affairs as lashing out at such a plot as being highly provocative, insisting that it will further stoke tensions on the ground and culminate into a major unrest.

Furthermore, Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, the incumbent Grand Mufti of al-Quds, has also censured attempts by authorities of the Israeli regime to Judaize and divide al-Aqsa Mosque, allow extremist settlers to pray in the sacrosanct site and alter its historical and legal status.
