Qatar Strongly Condemns Preventing Prayers in Al Aqsa Mosque

The State of Qatar strongly condemned Friday the Israeli occupation authorities’ prevention of Friday prayers at Al Aqsa Mosque, for the first time since 1969.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement today that Israeli occupation army’s closure of Al Aqsa mosque, prevention of prayers there, and declaration of the area as a closed military zone was a severe violation of holly Islamic sites and a provocation to millions of Muslims around the world.

The statement called on the international community to assume its responsibility in halting these violations.
