PressTV – Israel advances occupation agenda on Palestinian land: Analyst
The Israeli regime is resorting to all forms of violence to further its occupation agenda across the occupied Palestinian territories, a political commentator says.
Gilad Atzmon, a writer and political commentator from London, told Press TV that Israeli forces have “expelled and harassed” the indigenous population in order to take over the entire Palestinian land in recent decades.
He also stated that the Tel Aviv regime has not spared any efforts to make living conditions of Palestinians tough by “demolishing” their houses and “occupying” the Islamic holy sites.
The analyst made remarks while commenting on the ongoing tensions in the Palestinian city of al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Tel Aviv has announced the closure of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound to Palestinian worshippers for the first time since 2000. Israelis say the holy site will be reopened to those over 50.
Mahmud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian national unity government, also warned that the Israeli move amounts to a “declaration of war.”
