Saudi Arabia Denounces Israeli Leaders and Radical Settlers for Breaking into the Al-Aqsa Mosque

On Wednesday, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia denounced the incursion of a number of Israeli government officials, Knesset members, and radical settlers into the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Israeli government’s decision to permit radicals to plan a provocative march through Jerusalem under the protection of the Israeli military forces was also denounced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Thousands of Israeli nationalists marched through the Old City of East Jerusalem on Wednesday, waving flags and many of them yelling anti-Arab slogans. The main streets were devoid of Palestinians, who were afraid of being attacked.

The so-called Jerusalem Day flag march honors the Israeli army’s victory over the Arab-Israeli conflict in 1967 by taking control of the eastern part of the city, which is home to the Al-Aqsa mosque compound—Islam’s third-holiest site—and what Jews refer to as the Temple Mount.
According to the ministry, the Kingdom confirmed that these violations constituted a “provocation to the feelings of Muslims around the world, especially in light of the continuing war and acts of violence against defenseless Palestinian civilians in Gaza and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories.”
