ISLAMABAD, Monday, April 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Pakistan today voiced serious concern over Israeli violent assaults against Palestinians in the occupied city of East Jerusalem.
Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed in a press release “serious concern over the recent developments in occupied Palestinian Territories” as it stated that it views “the recent alarming developments in the Occupied Palestinian Territories with serious concern.”
“These include harassment of people coming for prayers, arrests of innocent Palestinians and other arbitrary restrictions in violation of fundamental human rights.”

The Ministry condemned “these violent acts carried out by the Israeli Occupation forces” and “urged the international community for prompt action to protect Palestinians.”
“Pakistan steadfastly supports the Palestinian people's inalienable right to self-determination.
