Doha (UNA-OIC) – The State of Qatar has strongly condemned Israeli National Security Minister’s storming of the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces, considering it a flagrant violation of the international law and the Hashemite guardianship over the holy sites in Occupied Jerusalem.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned against the escalation policy pursued by the Israeli government in the occupied Palestinian territories, and asserted that compromising the religious and historic situation of Al-Aqsa Mosque is not only a violation of the Palestinians, but of millions of Muslims worldwide.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs held the Israeli occupation authorities responsible for the violence cycle that would happen as a result of this systematic escalation policy against the Palestinian people and on their lands and Islamic and Christian holy places. The Ministry urged the international community to urgently act to stop these violations.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated the State of Qatar’s firm stance on the justice of the Palestinian cause, and the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, including the full right to practicing their religious rituals without restrictions and establishing their independent state within the borders of 1967, with eastern Jerusalem as its capital.
