South Africa condemns the Israeli occupation’s storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque

South Africa condemned, on Thursday, the Israeli occupation forces’ storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.

In a statement, the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation expressed its concern about the occupation forces attacking worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The statement said: “South Africa condemns the acts of violence carried out by the Israeli occupation government against worshipers and calls for calm and the withdrawal of forces from Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

It stressed that violence against worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque is unacceptable, and that such actions threaten the internationally recognized status quo regarding Jerusalem and its holy sites.

The statement described (Israel) as an “occupying power”, indicating that the South African government is ready to do everything possible to prevent human rights violations against the Palestinians.

Over the past two nights, the Israeli occupation forces stormed the Al-Qibli prayer hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, and beat the worshipers and stationed, and arrested hundreds of them.

Tensions have escalated in the city of Jerusalem and its environs, since the formation of the last Israeli occupation government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu late last year, which Hebrew media describes as “the most extremist in the history of (Israel).”
