Qatar stressed on Monday the importance of having the international community move urgently to stop the continued Israeli aggression towards the Palestinian people and Al Aqsa Mosque. Qatar renewed its condemnation of the Israeli occupation forces' storming into Al Aqsa Mosque and its attack on worshipers, saying it provoked the feelings of millions of Muslims around the world and constituted a severe violation of human rights and international conventions.
This came in Qatar's speech given by HE Director of the International Organisations Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Yousef Sultan Larem at the extraordinary meeting at the level of foreign ministers of member states at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
HE Larem saluted the Palestinian people at the occupied Al Quds for their legendary unarmed struggle against the occupation's bullets, and their martyrdom for their cause and their right to establish an independent state with East Al Quds as its capital. He noted that the occupied Al Quds and Al Aqsa Mosque are witnessing an unprecedented escalation in tensions by the Israeli occupation's forces, reflected in the increased rate of Judaisation and settlements to a level that can only be described as ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and all that is not Jewish by settlers who admitted on camera that they were stealing from Palestinian homes with the Israeli occupation forces watching on, highlighting that a lot of these attacks can be categorised as war crimes.
He added that the arbitrary Israeli bombing of Gaza has led to civilian deaths that included women and children, describing it as a criminal attack that is condemned and rejected, and plays a role in the deterioration of the situation in the occupied Al Quds. HE Larem renewed Qatar's firm position of supporting the Palestinian cause, and the rights of the Palestinian people in practicing their religious rights and establishing an independent state based on the borders of 1967 with East Al Quds as its capital.
