Religious Affairs Minister Ismail Radwan of Palestinian government in Gaza said on Monday that if Al-Aqsa Mosque was damaged, a war of religions would break out.

Speaking at a press conference, Radwan said if Al-Aqsa Mosque was damaged due to the attacks and violations of Israel, a war of religions would break out which would not be to the interest of anyone.

Radwan called on the Arab League and the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to take action against the Israeli threats towards Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Last week, it was announced that Israel was preparing a law which would give Jews the right of worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In August 2012, a draft had been presented to the parliament by Israeli extreme rightist parliamentarian Aryeh Eldad to apportion the prayer times between Muslims and Jews at Al-Aqsa which had been harshly reacted by Palestine.

Also, an extreme rightist Jew Baruch Goldstein had killed 29 Palestinians, who were praying at Abraham Mosque on February 25, 1994 by opening fire on them.

After the bloody incident, the mosque had been closed for eight months and Israel made arrangements on its own, and divided the mosque between Muslims and Jews.
