Iran blasts Zionist entity’s closure of al-Aqsa Mosque
Iran has censured the Zionist entity’s recent move to shut down al-Aqsa Mosque and cancel Friday prayers at the holy site, warning against the “dangerous repercussions” of such measures.
According to Press TV, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Saturday said the Israeli regime’s move runs counter to “fundamental principles of human rights and humanitarian law.”
In addition to all crimes and acts of aggression against and violations of the Palestinians’ basic rights, the Israeli regime has “targeted the religious freedom and rights of the Palestinian Muslims with a new alarming precedent, which will lead to dangerous consequences,” he added.
The Iranian spokesperson stressed the importance of the re-opening of al-Aqsa Mosque as soon as possible and called on all independent countries across the world and international circles to exert pressure on the Tal Aviv regime to observe “the least rights” of people in the occupied territories.
