Berlin, 7 Dzulhijjah 1436/21 September 2015 (MINA) – Germany-based pro-Palestine groups have staged rallies and campaigns in support for the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, in Occupied Jerusalem, and the nonviolent Muslim worshipers.
A mass-rally bearing the title “No Way to Divide al-Aqsa” was organized Friday in Berlin by the Palestinian Assembly in Germany, along with a handful of feminist and youth organizations, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting, Sunday (20/9).
The rally-goers firmly denounced the Israeli attacks on al-Aqsa and voiced their heartfelt solidarity with Jerusalem’s Muslim congregation.
Another vigil kicked off Saturday afternoon in Germany’s western city of Recklinghausen, where protesters spoke out against Israel’s preplanned terrorism against Islamic and Christian holy sites in Occupied Jerusalem.
Other anti-Israel rallies and forums are expected to kick off on October 3 across Stuttgart in solidarity with al-Aqsa Mosque.
A statement by the Palestinian Assembly in Germany slammed the mounting Israeli aggression on al-Aqsa.
The group’s head Dr. Suhail Abu Shamala said such pro-Palestine campaigns come in response to the dangerous escalation in Occupied Jerusalem and attacks on al-Aqsa Mosque.
He called for pressuring the Israeli occupation to cease its violations and terrorism in Occupied Jerusalem.
He vowed that Germany-based activists will continue to step up pressure on the European stakeholders so as to pursue steps that would seriously deter the Israeli occupation.(T/P008/R03)
