The Arab League has strongly denounced the Israeli aggressive practices at the Aqsa Mosque following the Eid al-Adha prayers on Sunday in Occupied Jerusalem.
In a statement, Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul Gheit said that the events that happened at the Aqsa Mosque at the behest of the Israeli government reflected “a systematic Israeli policy aimed at normalizing the Jewish presence in al-Haram al-Sharif and reducing the Muslim presence there, even on the holy days when Eid prayers are performed.”
Aboul Geit held the Israeli government responsible for its serious escalation of the situation at the Aqsa Mosque in order to please extremist Jewish groups, warning that Israel’s reckless and barbaric policies would fuel the flames of fanaticism in the region and threaten to ignite a religious strife in the occupied city of Jerusalem.
He appealed to the international community to stand in the face of the Israeli Judaization campaign taking place in Jerusalem under political cover from the US administration.
