Al Azhar Council of Senior Scholars said on Tuesday 25/7/2017 that the Israeli forces' practices in Al Aqsa violate laws and shari'a, and are not based on any human or civilized principle.
The council condemned Israel's irresponsible and provocative actions, calling on major powers, the UNESCO, and Islamic and human rights organizations to carry out their duties towards places of worship in Jerusalem and Palestine.
The council also warned against the silence of the international community about these aggressive practices, urging educational institutions and the ministries of awqaf across the Muslim world to increase awareness of the Palestinian cause.
Al Azhar also expressed its appreciation for the solidarity of churches with Muslims in the occupied territories.
