Palestinian Foreign Ministry: Fighting Israeli aggression is the duty of the Arab and Islamic world

Countering Israel’s aggression against holy sites is the duty of the Arab and Islamic world.

This is stated in a message from Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad El-Maliki to the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Hussein Ibrahim Taha, transmitted through the Secretary General of the League of Arab States (LAS) Ahmed Abu Ghait, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry reported.

Commenting on the events around the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, Al-Maliki called on the Arab League and the OIC to take decisive action to support Jerusalem, Christian and Islamic shrines in Jerusalem.

The minister stressed the need to deepen cooperation between the Arab and Islamic worlds in the political and diplomatic plane, as well as in the international arena in order to withdraw the occupying forces from Jerusalem and provide international protection to the Palestinian people.

Israeli security forces raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque after morning prayers, forced the Palestinians out and closed the gates of the shrine.

The police beat several Palestinians, and after that a group of fanatical Jews broke into the courtyard of the mosque, accompanied by security forces.

The Islamic Waqf Funds Authority reported that there were 545 settlers.

The provocations of fanatical Jews against the Islamic shrine have become more frequent due to the Jewish holiday of Pesach, which began on April 15 and will last a week. Jews escorted by Israeli police break into the mosque in the morning and evening, except on Friday and Saturday.

The Palestinians try to thwart the provocations, leading to clashes with the Israeli security forces.
