Al-Quds, 3 Rajab 1436/22 April 2015 (MINA) – The Palestinian Foreign Ministry has renewed its call to international and Islamic bodies to stop Israeli attempts to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque temporally and spatially.
In a statement, made available to Anadolu Agency on Monday, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned the Israeli government, military and security for their facilitation of attempts to break into Al-Aqsa Mosque by Jewish extremists.
“Several times, the ministry has been warning the Arab and Islamic worlds and the international community of the repercussions of the official Israeli policy aimed at taking control of Al-Aqsa Mosque and dividing it temporally and spatially.”
The Foreign Ministry stressed that international silence regarding Israeli violations in Jerusalem in general, and in Al-Aqsa Mosque in particular, encourages the Israeli government to continue in disrespecting international law and the Geneva Convention, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The ministry demanded that the international community take urgent action to stop the break-ins and attempts to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to take the necessary procedures, guaranteed by international law, to hold those responsible accountable and deter racists and extremists.
Al-Aqsa mosque has witnessed a number of raids by Jewish settlers under the protection of Israeli police throughout the year. (T/P002/R04)
