The General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide warns of Israel's endless provocative actions in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque

Friday, July 28, 2017
The General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide warned of the repercussions of the continuing violations committed by the Israeli occupation forces against Jerusalem’s citizens and against their prevention from observing the Friday Prayer inside Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Israeli forces set up barricades around the mosque to prevent worshipers from entering. Tens of Palestinians were injured during the clashes while one hundred worshippers who were in spiritual seclusion inside the mosque were detained.
In a news statement issued on Friday, the Secretary General of the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide, Dr. Ibrahim Negm, vehemently condemned the continued violations and atrocities committed by the Israeli occupation forces against unarmed Palestinians and their prevention from performing prayers inside Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Dr. Negm stated that the occupation forces must immediately end their provocative actions that are an affront to religious figures and the sacred sites in Jerusalem. "Such violations and provocations might lead to regional religious-based conflicts, undermining all efforts exerted to reach a comprehensive and just regional peace on a two-state solution," Dr. Negm added.
In his statement, the Secretary General called upon the international community's organizations and institutions topped by the United Nations' bodies to take immediate action to protect the sacred sites and religious figures in Jerusalem as well as to guarantee the implementation of international treaties and laws.
