Many people are also angry that PA continues to move forward.
Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh of the Palestinian Authority said that the investigation is ongoing and those responsible for the incident will be brought to justice.

Mashal said: “Did she violate this article so far? I can only tell you; I don̵
DJ’s father Saad Abdul Hadi (Saad Abdul Hadi) told CNN that he was very upset about his daughter’s detention and rejected her allegations that she had desecrated the Holy Land, saying the party It was held in another part of the compound.
“It’s not true that people are drunk or taking drugs,” he said. “It’s not true that she plays electronic music in the mosque-in fact, no one enters the mosque. It’s all held in the bazaar and tourists come here to shop and stay. In the hotel.”
Saad Abdul Hadi said that the Palestinian Authority is picking up his daughter to hide its embarrassment about the public’s response to the party.
“It seems that the Palestinian Authority doesn’t know how to control the anger in this street, so they regard Sama as a scapegoat and this street as a mistake.”
Saad Abdul Hadi added that his daughter was commissioned by a Paris production company to perform in many Palestinian historical sites and was given the Palestinian tour operator responsible for the Nabi Musa bazaar. The permission from the Ministry of Antiquities is different from the mosque of the mosque handled by the Ministry of Religious Affairs.
CNN has received a letter from the Ministry of Tourism, permitting DJ Sama and the production company to shoot movies in Nabi Musa, as long as they “comply with necessary safety measures” and “respect the The religious and cultural significance and privacy of the site”.
According to her lawyer, Abdul Hadi was also prosecuted for violating the Covid-19 procedure.
CNN has contacted the Ministry of Tourism for comment. Prime Minister Shtayyeh of the Palestinian Authority is also Minister of Religious Affairs.
But famous religious figures quickly condemned the electronic ball, which shows how intense the incident has become.
Mahmoud Al-Habbash, a judge of the Supreme Court of the Palestinian Authority and adviser on religious affairs and Islamic relations, said in a tweet: “I feel very sick and angry about what happened at the Nabi Musa Mosque… I still don’t know who is responsible for this crime, but whoever is responsible must be deterred and punished commensurate with the atrocities that have occurred, because the mosque is the temple of God and its sacredness is the sacredness of our religion.”
Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Hussam Abu-Alrub (Hussam Abu-Alrub) said in an interview with Palestinian radio station NAS that his ministry is in charge of the mosque, but was not allowed to hold any activities in the mosque.
Abu Alrub added: “The crimes committed are unacceptable and exceed all our religious principles.” “We will not remain silent in Afkaf Province and will continue to investigate.”
DJ Sama is one of the most popular DJs in the region and one of the first Palestinian women to have a high reputation in the electronic music industry.
Her lawyer urged people to study the facts. Mashal said: “If the license is not obtained, the incident will not happen.” “So who is responsible for not considering what will happen? I don’t know. Is this Sama’s fault? It remains to be seen.”
