Israeli authorities on Thursday banned the Manager of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa, Dr. Najih Bekirat, from entering the mosque for a period of six months.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), the family of Dr. Bekirat have said that Israeli troops staged a raid on their home on Thursday evening and informed them that Dr. Bekirat would not be able to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque until March 3, 2013.
In a military decision signed by Israeli General Eyal Eisenberg, Israeli authorities stated that "Dr. Bekirat would not be able to enter the premises of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. As long as he is not permitted, Dr. Bekirat can not get closer than 20 meters to the mosque".
On the other hand, a similar decision on Dr. Bekirat was taken earlier and that Israeli authorities also banned Dr. Bekirat from giving statements to the press members until the end of 2012.
Dr. Bekirat began his job as the Manager of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa in August, 2012.
