OIC: Violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque feed extremism
The Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Iyad Amin Madani has strongly condemned the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by extremist settlers under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Madani warned that storming Al-Aqsa, closing its gates, and the brutal assault carried out against Muslim worshipers are a provocation to the Islamic states’ feelings and a flagrant violation of numerous UN resolutions and international conventions.
Madani held “Israel fully responsible for the consequences of the continuation of these systematic violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque” which he said “feed religious conflict, extremism and instability in the region.”
He called on the international community, especially the UN Security Council, to shoulder its responsibilities to put an end to these dangerous and repeated Israeli violations against holy places
