Hamas said in a statement that the entry ofthe U.S. delegation into the al-Aqsa Mosque under the escort of Israeli police violates international law and resolutions.“This wrong measure, as we have always emphasized, reflects the United States’ policies in support of the positionstaken by the Zionist regime, and it is one of the main reasons for the continuation of the Israeli occupation and actsof aggression against the Palestinian nation and sanctities,” it added. “The repetition of such moves will encouragethe Zionist enemy to commit more foolish acts and will increase tensions by fanning the flames in the occupiedterritories, especially in al-Quds. The US government will be responsible for all dangerous consequences.”Meanwhile, Islamic Jihad spokesman Tariq Salmi said that the U.S. delegation’s visit to al-Quds and the Al-AqsaMosque as well as its meetings with Zionist and Palestinian officials are meant to strengthen the so-called “securitycooperation” between the Israeli regime and Palestinian Authority. This trip, he added, is also aimed at “returning tothe path of fruitless peace talks through the implementation of the tripartite agreement between the United States, theZionist regime and the Palestinian Authority.” Salmi further called on all Palestinian factions to confront the enemy’sschemes, which are designed to breach the Palestinians’ national rights and principles.The al-Aqsa Mosque compound is the third-holiest site in Islam. It is located in East al-Quds, which Israelannexed following its invasion in 1967, in a move never recognized by the international community.Israeli forces and settlers regularly storm the site, which they call the Temple Mount, and violently attackPalestinian worshipers there.8SPORTSOpelka RalliesPast Kyrgios atATP Toronto Event SEE PAGE 8U.S. Seizes QuranicTiles From IranTEHRAN (PressTV) – U.S. custom authorities haveconfiscated a set of Iranian tiles to be used inconstruction of a new mosque in Virginia, demandingthey must be shipped backed to Iran or destroyed.The tiles, which are adorned with Quranic verses,were shipped in June from the Iranian city of Qom, tobe used in construction of the Manassas Mosque innorthern Virginia.However, they were confiscated at Dulles InternationalAirport after they were deemed to violate sanctions on Iran,the mosque’s imam Abolfazl Nahidian said on Tuesday.The tiles were a gift and he paid no money for them,but custom authorities at the airport blocked him fromclaiming them citing the sanctions, he told a newsconference at the mosque. A letter from Customs andBorder Protection informed the mosque that the tilesmust be either shipped back to Iran or destroyed, theAssociated Press cited him as saying.Destroying the tiles, which are adorned with Quranicverses, “is the same as destroying verses of the Quran,or the whole Qur’an itself”, Nahidian said.The mosque is now asking the Biden administrationto release the custom-made tiles.See Page 7Iran Fails to AchieveTwo-Month OilRevenues TargetIRAN NEWS ECONOMIC DESKTEHRAN – The Central Bank of Iran report shows thatin the first two months of this solar year, only2.5 percent of the projected oil revenues were realizedin the state budget.The approved sources of oil exports and petroleumproducts in 1400, about 349,000 billion tomans, alittle over 59,000 billion tomans should have beenachieved in the first two months of the year, but inpractice only 1500 billion tomans, i.e. 2.5 percent,have been realized.Last year, the government included exports of1.5 million barrels of oil per day in the budget, whichled to a significant budget deficit, with only17.5 percent realized.
