QATAR CONDEMNS ISRAELI VIOLENCE AGAINST PALESTINIAN WORSHIPPERS AT JERUSALEM’S SHRINE

DOHA, Qatar, Qatar, on Saturday, strongly condemned the Israeli forces, for clashing with Palestinian worshippers, at the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, in Jerusalem.

“The Israeli occupation forces … deliberately chose the holiest times and places, in order to provoke the feelings of 1.5 billion Muslims,” Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, in a statement.

The Qatari ministry also condemned the recently approved Israeli Nation Law, describing it as “racist” against the Palestinians.

According to the new Israeli law, the Palestinian people, on the Israel-occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, have no right to self-determination.

The Qatari statement called on the international community, to take urgent action to stop Israel’s human rights violations, and to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque and other holy sites in Palestine.
