JEDDAH: Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned Israel’s closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the banning of Friday prayers for the first time since 1969, describing that as a crime, a serious precedent and a blatant attack on the holy sites and an attack on the rights and freedom of Palestinians to practice their religious rites.
OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen warned of the Israeli occupation’s attempts to impose new facts inside Al-Aqsa mosque.
He called on the international community to act immediately to deter repeated Israeli attacks against Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Al-Quds and to stop Israel’s racist violations and crimes against the Palestinian people and their holy sites.
