Qatar urges int'l response to desecration of al-Aqsa

Tehran, Jan 8, IRNA – Qatar's Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani on Tuesday denounced actions by the Zionist regime of Israel in the occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem), asking the international community to put an end to the illegal measures and profaning al-Aqsa Mosque by the Zionists.

Al-Thani wrote on his Twitter page, 'We strongly condemn Israel's human rights abuses in the occupied al-Quds since these measures worsen regional crisis.'

He called on the international community to end the Zionists' illegal conduct regarding holy al-Aqsa Mosque.

Zionists raided al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday, with their Minister of Agriculture, Uri Ariel accompanying them once again.

Benjamin Netanyahu the Zionist regime's Prime Minister in June lifted a three-year ban on Knesset members to enter al-Aqsa Mosque. Since then the Zionist regime's ministers and officials, along with settlers, enjoying support by the Zionist military, have violated the sanctity of al-Aqsa Mosque.

Also, the Zionist regime on Monday prevented Gaza Strip from receiving Qatar's financial aid. The aid was supposed to be transferred to the area via Beit Hanoun on the northeast edge of Gaza.

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) condemned the Zionists' decision to suspend Qatar's fund transfer to the Gaza Strip and emphasized continuing the March of Return until Palestinians can fully restore their rights.

The March of Return is a series of protests held by Palestinians which have been held every Friday since March 30, 2018. The protesters demand that Palestinian refugees and their descendants be allowed to return to their mother land, a land they have been displaced from.
