Ammon News - On Monday, August 21, 2023, marked the 54th anniversary of the burning of Al-Aqsa Mosque by an Australian zealot, Denis Michael Rohan.

In 1969, Rohan deliberately set fire to the mosque’s historic Salahuddin pulpit. The fire then spread to other parts of the building. Palestinian fire engines from Ramallah, Bethlehem, and Hebron rushed to contain the flames.

On the following day, thousands of Muslims performed Friday prayers in the outer courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and then demonstrations swept occupied East Jerusalem in protest. In the aftermath of the fire, the first Islamic summit conference was held in Rabat, Morocco.
