SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association)- Iran’s Assembly of Experts has condemned Israel’s atrocities in the occupied Palestinian territories and called for a united Muslim world campaign against the issue.
“The world public opinion, particularly the Muslim world, has been witnessing an inhumane crackdown by the usurper Zionists and the plot for the demolition of the first Qibla of Muslims, Al-Aqsa Mosque, over the past days,” the assembly of experts said in a Monday statement.
The statement warned that the situation can lead to the “rise of another Intifada in the occupied territories” and provoke Muslim world’s response on the issue.
“Now is the time for the Islamic governments to awaken in the face of the usurping actions of the Zionist regime [of Israel] and stand against the ploys of this regime and show solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian nation who needs the Muslims’ support in their uprising these days,” the statement added.
Tensions have been running high at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) over the past few weeks.
Palestinians are extremely angry at Tel Aviv’s raids as well as its new restrictions on the access of Palestinians to the mosque, considering the move as part of the Israeli regime’s plan to Judaize and desecrate the holy site.
