Qatar, Oman condemn Israel for enabling racist minister into Al-Aqsa Mosque

The State of Qatar and the Sultanate of Oman have condemned in the strongest terms the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and performing Talmudic rituals by ultranationalist Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir together with hundreds of settlers, under the protection of the occupation authorities.

In a press statement, Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it considers this a flagrant violation of international law and the Hashemite Custodianship of the holy sites in occupied Jerusalem, warning of the escalatory policy adopted by the Israeli government in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

It also stressed that the attempts to prejudice the religious and historical status of Al-Aqsa Mosque are not only an attack on the Palestinians but also on millions of Muslims around the world.

The Qatari Foreign Ministry held the Israeli occupation authorities solely responsible for the cycle of violence that will result from these repeated incursions into the blessed Al Aqsa Mosque, calling on the international community to take urgent action to stop these attacks.

The ministry reiterated the firm position of the State of Qatar regarding the justice of the Palestinian cause, and the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, including the full right to practice their religious rituals without restrictions, and to establish their independent state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Meantime, the Omani Foreign Ministry expressed the Sultanate of Oman’s condemnation of Israel enabling Ben-Gvir to storm the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of the occupation forces.

The statement called on the international community to assume its responsibilities towards securing the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, ending the occupation and achieving a just and comprehensive peace.
