MWL denounces attack at Al-Aqsa Mosque

The Muslim World League (MWL) has denounced yesterday's storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli forces, and their indiscriminate shooting, saying that Muslim nations and minorities and Islamic organizations condemn this vicious crime that led to terrorizing of worshippers and the shedding of blood in a holy place. The MWL urges the international community to work towards ending Israel's irrational policy towards Islamic sites, and calls on the United Nations to implement the resolutions adopted by the Security Council concerning their protection, and to prevent Israel from desecrating them and attacking the worshippers in them. Silence at Israel's repeated crimes, the statement declared, will pave the way for escalation of tension in a manner that undermines global peace and security.
