Iran slams judaization of Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli forces

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham condemned Israel’s efforts to judaize the al-Aqsa Mosque in the Holy Quds.

Afkham expressed concern about continued judaization in Holy Quds and holy sites especially al-Aqsa Mosque by the Zionist regime of Israel.

She further called on all Muslim governments and nations as well as international community to react immediately to stop crimes of the Zionist regime against the Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza strip.

Afkham criticized attack of Jewish settlers and the occupying forces on the Palestinians inside al-Aqsa Mosque and prevention of Muslims from entering the mosque.

Over recent days, the Israeli forces and vandals stepped up sacrilegious assaults on the holy al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—and tightened military grip around the necks of the peaceful Muslim sit-inners who have been maintaining vigil at the Mosque.

Tension has mounted across the West Bank districts and Jerusalem with Israel’s repeated assault of al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, particularly its growing attempts to temporally divide the site between Muslims and Jews.

The situation has also been significantly deteriorating since the deadly arson attack on the Dawabsheh’s family home on July 31, which was carried out by Jewish settlers.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, Twenty three Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and security forces since the beginning of October 2015.
