Statement: Banning Palestinians from performing prayers at Ibrahimi Mosque is calculated violation

30 May, 20

The Israeli banning of Palestinians from performing prayers at the Ibrahimi Mosque is a part of calculated violations against the Palestinian people and new aggression against the holy places committed amid the international silence and Arab rush for normalising ties with the Israeli occupation.

The Israeli aggressive policies towards the Palestinian people will not dissuade them from continuing the freedom struggle against the occupation. We stress that resisting the Israeli occupation and defending the rights of the Palestinian people are sacred duties that no Palestinian would abandon.

In light of the recent developments, the Palestinians are required to intensify their popular and national work, especially in the West Bank and Jerusalem, to resist and foil the Israeli schemes aimed to control holy places.
