Jerusalem (SD) – Israeli forces attacked the holy mosque of Al-Aqsa, where thousands of Palestinian Muslims were praying in Ramadan’s last days.
Hundreds of people, mostly women and children, were injured in the brutal Israeli attack.
The governments of Qatar and Turkey have so far condemned the Al-Aqsa mosque attack during the holy month of Ramadan by Israeli forces.
A US State Department spokeswoman said Washington was “deeply concerned about the heightened tensions”.
The UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Vennesland, urged all parties to “respect the status quo of holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City in the interest of peace & stability.”
The latest conflict is over Palestinian territory, which is being taken over by Israeli settlers.
