Doha, ALRAY - The Qatari State on Tuesday condemned in the strongest terms the storming of the al-Aqsa Mosque by dozens of Israeli settlers, in addition to the so-called Temple Group’s alleged agreement with the Israeli occupation police to extend the hours of storming the al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs considered the storming of the al-Aqsa Mosque and the agreement to extend the hours of storming, during the blessed month of Ramadan, a dangerous escalation and provocation to the feelings of more than two billion Muslims in the world, and a flagrant violation of international law and resolutions of international legitimacy.
The ministry warned against introducing any changes to the historical and legal status of al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem and its sanctities.
It held the occupation authorities solely responsible for the cycle of violence that will result from this systematic policy against the rights of the Palestinian people, urging the international community to take urgent actions to stop these measures.
The ministry reiterated the firm position of the state of Qatar regarding the injustice of the Palestinian cause and the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, including the full right to practice their religious rites without restrictions and establish their independent state on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
