KUWAIT CITY, Aug 7: Kuwait on Sunday condemned in the strongest terms the storming of the courtyards of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli settlers, under the protection of Israeli armed forces. The move is a grave violation of international laws and conventions, a foreign ministry statement underlined, urging the international community to intervene and stop all acts of violence against the Palestinian people.
The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed the Kingdom’s condemnation of the storming of the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque by Jewish settlers on Sunday. The incursions are a serious violation of international law, aiming to tamper with the historical and legal status of Jerusalem and the sanctity of the Islamic holy sites in the city, the Ministry said in a statement. The ongoing violations and attacks on the holy sites exacerbate tension and push the situation into a continuous cycle of violence, according to the statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). The Ministry urged the international community to shoulder their responsibilities and end the Israeli aggressions, and provide the necessary protection for the Palestinian civilians (KUNA)
