Saudi Arabia condemns Zionist entity’s storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque, attacking worshipers

According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the source on Sunday evening expressed Saudi Arabia‘s refusal to “continue the violations committed by the Zionist occupation forces against the Palestinian people,” calling on the international community to “protect the Palestinian people from the various aggressive practices committed by the Zionist occupation forces against the Palestinian civilians that provoke the feelings of Muslims and violate the rights of Palestinian brothers”.

Dozens of worshipers were injured on Sunday, the first day of Eid al-Adha, by rubber-coated metal bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas canisters, which were fired by the Zionist occupation forces abundantly towards them, after storming the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Zionist occupation forces stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque in the morning of Sunday to disperse thousands of worshipers who gathered to prevent the settlers from storming Al-Aqsa on the first day of Eid al-Adha to commemorate what they call “the destruction of the Temple”.

For its part, Al-Azhar Observatory, a firewall against radicalism and extremism, condemned the actions of the occupation forces, declaring its close follow-up, around the clock, all what is happening on the scene of the confrontations and attacks by the occupying entity, warning of calls by senior rabbis for the storming of Al-Aqsa squares.
