Kabul: Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem by the Israeli army, assaulting worshipers and arresting several on Wednesday, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
In a statement, the ministry “expressed the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s condemnation and rejection of the blatant storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque’s compound.”
“Such actions violate international principles and norms regarding respect for religious sanctities,” the statement said.
Israeli police attacked dozens of worshippers in Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque compound before dawn on Wednesday, witnesses said, after storming inside.
Reports indicate that the this attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque lasted for nearly 4 hours.
From tomorrow, Thursday, April 6, the Jewish “Easter” begins and lasts for a week. Easter is one of the three festivals of the Torah for which special actions are foreseen.
According to the commitments made by the regime in 1948, Al-Aqsa Mosque’s territory is outside the jurisdiction of the occupiers and it is under the responsibility of Jordan. During the last eight decades, Tel Aviv has repeatedly pledged that Jews will not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Meanwhile the Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement strongly condemning the cruel attack by the forces of the Israel regime on the worshipers in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
According to the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was published on the Ministry’s website last night, according to reports, last night, about 100 innocent Palestinians were injured and 400 more Palestinians were arrested by Israeli forces.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has emphasized that such inhumane actions by Israeli forces against innocent Palestinians and disrespecting holy places are a clear violation of international, Islamic and humanitarian laws, and are arousing the feelings of Muslims around the world and insulting values and sanctities.
