The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the state of Palestine demanded immediate international involvement in the wake of the persistent targeting of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by apartheid Israel.

In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a warning about the risks posed by calls made by radical Jewish organizations to conduct huge incursions into the Holy Mosque Al-Aqsa on Tuesday and Wednesday in conjunction with the so-called (Purim Eid).

It is pertinent to note that the extreme right-wing government, which is focused on stoking tensions and creating new crises, is now threatening a massive explosion with unthinkable repercussions in the arena of battle.

The Israeli government is solely and directly accountable for these invasions.

Hence, along these lines, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry demands international as well as American intervention to halt them before it’s too late.

Al-Aqsa Mosque

Al-Aqsa Mosque is located in the Old City of Jerusalem and is the third holiest site in Islam. It is a silver-domed mosque located within a 35-acre compound known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif.

The term Al-Aqsa Mosque is frequently used to refer to the entire plaza that houses the mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

The mosque has space for over 4000 Muslims to worship. The entire region has had significant geopolitical importance and has been a major flashpoint between Israel and Palestine.
