Keeping guard Samer Abu Qweider away from Al-Aqsa Mosque
June 4, 2013

The Israeli police officers prevented last Tuesday Samer Abu Qweider from practicing his work in the mosque, claiming that the decision of keeping him away from Al-Aqsa is valid until the end of Ramadan. Abu Qweider explained that the Israeli Magistrate court Judge decided on the 28th of last month to keep him away from Al-Aqsa for 6 days, after he prevented a group of extremists from practicing their religious rituals inside Al-Aqsa, noting that the 6 days were over last Sunday, and that he went back to his work as normal, but was surprised when the police officers prevented him from entering Al-Aqsa two hours after his shift was over. He added: “I was present today by Dar Al-Qur’an Al-Karim near Al-Silsileh Gate, and two officers asked me to come outside, and told me that I was prevented from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque, and I told them that my deportation time was over on Sunday, but they told me: “we know that you executed the court’s decision but this is the police officers’ decision; a military court decision,” knowing that he was never handed any prevention decision.
