Palestine urges int'l community to protect Al Aqsa Mosque

Sun, Jul. 16, 2017
RAMALLAH – 16 July 2017: The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday urged the international community, as well as the Arab and Islamic world to quickly assume their responsibilities to save the holy Al Aqsa Mosque "before it is too late."

In a statement, the ministry condemned the Israeli measures against the holy mosque.

In an unprecedented step, Israel closed Al Aqsa and banned the Friday prayer following a nearby attack that left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead.

The Israeli government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu bears full and direct responsibility for its aggressive actions, illegal measures and gross violations of the status of Al Aqsa since 1967, the ministry said.

It added that the International reactions have not lived up to the required level and are not enough to pressure the occupation authorities to immediately stop their ongoing aggression.
