The Palestinian Foreign Ministry called on the Security Council “to take the necessary measures to pressure Israel to stop its escalation against the Palestinian people”.

RAMALLAH — Palestine has urged the United Nations Security Council to stop Israel from escalating tensions against Palestinians after Jewish settlers reportedly decided to break into Islam’s third holiest mosque, Al Aqsa in East Jerusalem.

On Tuesday, Israeli media reported that some Jewish organisations called for an “incursion into Al-Aqsa Mosque’s compound,” which will be launched on Thursday morning until the afternoon.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned the Zionists’ plans to raise Israeli flags and sing the Israeli national anthem at the mosque, saying in a statement that “these violations reflect the official Israeli insistence to escalate the situation and implement its plans to perpetuate the occupation”.

The Ministry called on the Security Council “to take the necessary measures to pressure Israel to stop its escalation against the Palestinian people”.

Hussein Al-Sheikh, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, called the extremists’ plans “an outrageous disregard of the feelings of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims” and “a continuation of extremist racist campaigns.”

The Israeli government did not comment on the Israeli extremists’ calls, Xinhua news agency reported.

Since the start of the the Muslims’ fasting month of Ramadan early April, tension between Israelis and Palestinians has been running high. — IANS
