NABLUS, Oct.16– In light of the Israeli forces and settlers escalated violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque and holy sites in general, Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah has urged the international community to protect the Palestinian people and put an end to these attacks.
Hamdallah, who visited the mosque of Abu Bakir in the village of Aqraba to the south of Nablus after settlers attacked it on Tuesday, denounced the attack, reiterating that the Israeli government’s negligence to hold the settlers accountable for the violations against Palestinians encourages their violence.
“Not only does the Israeli government fail to act against its settlers’ attacks against Palestinians, their properties, and religious sites, but it even provides them with protection,” said Hamdallah.
He called on the international community and the world countries to uphold their responsibilities and act against the daily violations committed against the holy sites, particularly al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing that the right to worship is a sacred right.
Al-Aqsa mosque, which has always been a target for Israeli forces and their settlers, has recently been under escalated attacks and attempts to divide it temporally and spatially between Muslims and Jews.
The Israeli government has been enforcing its illegal partition of the Mosque and lately worshipers have been denied access to the Mosque while settlers were allowed in, which proves the Israeli governments intentions.
