Press Release Regarding the Prevention of Muslims from Entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the Israeli Forces

لرقم: 316، التاريخ: 9 تشرين الأول/أكتوبر 2014، بيان حول الإجراءات التي اتخذتها إسرائيل ضد حرية عبادة المسلمين في الحرم القدسي الشريف

We strongly condemn the prevention of the Muslims from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the sacred sanctuary of the Islamic World, the forcible removal of the worshippers from the Mosque, and the resulting injuries of many Palestinians by the Israeli security forces on 8 October 2014.

We are concerned by the tensions and unrest that these provocative practices of Israel concerning Haram al- Sharif, which has a unique place for the entire Islamic World, might stir up in the region. We call on Israel to bring an end to this attitude violating the freedom of worship of the Muslims.
