Al-Aqsa protesters chant against Fatah-backed Jerusalem mufti

In videos on social media, hundreds of Palestinians could be seen chanting against Jerusalem Grand Mufti Mohammad Hussein inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque as he sought to give a Friday sermon.

Hussein’s role is sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, which is led by Hamas’s main rival, Fatah.

They could be heard chanting “We are Mohammad Deif’s men” at Hussein, in support of Hamas’s military wing leader.
