CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Palestine has submitted a request to the Arab League to hold an emergency session Wednesday to discuss recent Israeli attacks on the al-Aqsa mosque, an official said.
Palestinian ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra said that the recent visits of rightists protected by the Israeli army and police to al-Aqsa will lead to more tension and turn the conflict into a religious one.
“If Israel continues this policy,” he said, “it proves that it does not want peace but continues to violate international laws and resolutions.”
Al-Farra concluded that the international community must fulfill its duty to protect holy sites.
