The attack came as Palestine's Hamas said last day that the repetition of the assaults would never lead to the temporal and spatial separation of the holy mosque or the distortion of its Islamic identity.

Hamas called on people to participate in I'tikaf* rituals n Al-Aqsa Mosque to protect the mosque against the Israeli plots and demanded other countries support the Palestinian nation.

*I'tikaf is an Islamic ritual. In I'tikaf, people go to mosques and stay there for some days to worship God.
