In a statement, the Palestinian foreign ministry commended His Majesty’s stand against the ongoing “Israelization and Judaization” of Jerusalem and escalating attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque, worshipers, and guards, including attempts to impose a temporal and spatial division of the Al-Aqsa complex.

The Palestinian government and people highly recognize the political and diplomatic moves, led by His Majesty King Abdullah, to lay bare the Israeli aggression against Al-Aqsa Mosque, including incursions, repression, and attacks on worshipers, guards and the elderly, the statement said.

It highlighted the King’s warning of the consequences of emptying the mosque of worshipers to carry out provocative incursions and of the dangerous repercussions of these actions on the conflict and the entire region, as Israel tries to turn the political nature of the conflict to a religious war.

The Palestinian ministry noted the series of contacts His Majesty, the custodian of the Jerusalem holy sites, made with officials in the region and the world as well as the UN to galvanize world action to pressure the occupying power to cease the attacks.
