August 7, 2022 11:59 PM


Pakistan strongly condemns the storming of the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli settlers under the protection of Israeli occupying forces, reported 24 News HD TV Channel. 

 Asim Iftikhar Ahmad, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Sunday that this provocative action has blatantly violated the sanctity of the Qibla-e-Awal and hurt the sentiments of Muslims across the world.

Such incidents are flagrant violations of international law, international norms, and practices. Any attempt to change the historical and legal status of the Al-Aqsa Mosque must stop.

He said that Pakistan calls upon the international community to take urgent action to put an end to the Israeli aggression and violations, which continue to fuel violence, tension, and instability in the region.

For a just and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue, Pakistan renews its call for a viable, independent, and contiguous Palestinian State, with pre-1967 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital, in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions, he added.
