Presidency condemns Israeli police raid of Al-Aqsa Mosque

JERUSALEM, May 21, 2021 (WAFA) - The Presidency of Palestine strongly condemned today the latest incursion by the Israeli Police of the premises of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem.

It said in a statement that the Israeli assaults on Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem were a provocation that may drive the region into the cycle of violence and tensions once again.

"The Israeli government, by continuing its policy of provocation, attacks and incursions, is challenging international efforts that have been made to reach a calm and stop the violence and escalation in Jerusalem and the occupied Palestinian territories, and to stop the aggression on Gaza," said the statement.

The Presidency affirmed that the Israeli occupation government bears full responsibility for the escalation of the situation, and demanded the international community to press Israel to stop its violations and attacks on the holy sites, and to respect the legal and historical status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
