AL Coun­cil dis­cusses holy site cri­sis

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

The Arab League Coun­cil held an ex­tra­or­di­nary ses­sion at the level of the per­ma­nent del­e­gates of mem­ber coun­tries on Mon­day to dis­cuss the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in Jerusalem af­ter the Is­raeli “as­sault” against Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Pales­tinian rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the Arab League Am­bas­sador Ja­mal Al-Shobaki pre­sented a de­tailed re­port on “Is­raeli vi­o­la­tions” against Is­lamic and Chris­tian holy sites, es­pe­cially against the holy site of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The meet­ing was held ur­gently, upon a re­quest pre­sented by the Pales­tini­ans, to dis­cuss the re­cent shutdown of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Is­raeli in­stall­ment of elec­tronic doors at the en­trances of the mosque, to in­spect prayer-go­ers.

“Is­rael is launch­ing a fierce war against the Pales­tinian peo­ple, as the rad­i­cal wright-wing move­ment led by Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu is con­tin­u­ally tight­en­ing on Jerusalemites and work­ing upon the pol­icy of Al-Aqsa Mosque sep­a­ra­tion, spa­tially and tem­po­rally,” he said.
