Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian deplores the Israeli regime’s attacks on Palestinian worshippers in the al-Aqsa Mosque’s compound.
“Unfortunately, we bore witness to Zionists’ transgression on the al-Aqsa Mosque during [the holy fasting] month of Ramadan,” he told his Mauritanian counterpart Mohamed Salem Ould Merzoug during a phone call on Tuesday.
“We hope for the Palestinian nation to achieve its historical rights with the support of Muslim countries and nations,” the Iranian top diplomat added.
More than 150 Palestinian worshipers were injured when Israeli forces stormed the compound in the holy occupied city of al-Quds’ Old City on Saturday. The forces have kept up their violations on the flashpoint site besides cracking down on solidarity protests throughout the occupied West Bank, where the compound is located.
