Syria on Monday accused Israel of desecrating the Aksa Mosque and heaped praise on the site's "steadfast defenders," a Syrian news agency reported. "Storming" the mosque, "besieging" worshipers and "preventing them from entering" were just some of the steps Israel took this week in an effort to "Judaize" Jerusalem, SANA quoted a Syrian Foreign Ministry official as saying. According to the report, the official maintained that Israel, in its alleged campaign to destroy cultural Arab and holy Muslim sites, had tried to "demolish" the mosque and compromise its sanctity.
