Qatar Strongly Condemns Al-Aqsa Mosque Incursions, Calls for International Action
Qatar strongly condemned on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, the Israeli incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque and criticized the Israeli occupation for imposing strict restrictions on worshippers’ entry.
The Qatari Foreign Ministry stated that these actions constitute a provocation of Muslims and Christians worldwide.
They warned against tampering with the historical and legal status of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem, emphasizing that no changes should be made.
Qatar’s Foreign Ministry held the Israeli occupation solely responsible for the escalating violence against the Palestinian people, their lands, and their sanctities.
They called on the international community to urgently intervene to stop these aggressions and compel Israel to provide necessary protection for these holy sites while respecting international legitimacy.
Qatar reiterated its unwavering stance on the justice of the Palestinian issue and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to practice their right of worship without restrictions, establish their independent state, and have Jerusalem as its capital.
For the fifth consecutive day, Israeli occupation forces and settlers continued their aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
On this Wednesday, 1435 settlers entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the occasion of the “Sukkot Holiday,” performing Talmudic prayers and rituals.
