Arab League chief denounces Israeli measures in Jerusalem


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) CAIRO, July 19 (KUNA) -- Arab League Secretary General Ahmad Abul-Gheit on Wednesday denounced the Israeli violence and arbitrary measures against Palestinians in the occupied Jerusalem, especially in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In a statement, Abul-Gheit demanded the Israelis to immediately stop all bring to a halt all such practices and measures, and to fully respect the sanctity of the Mosque.

He warned against the gravity of the escalating Israel has been taking since Friday, preventing Palestinian worshippers from entering and performing prayers in Al-Aqsa.

These measures constitute obvious violation of the international human rights law, and will only lead to further tension and fueling of conditions in the city, in addition to provoking Muslims' feelings, Abul-Gheit said.

He noted that the measures will leave their positive implications on any opportunities for a political settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. (end) mfm.asm.maa.msa
