Arab League to hold session on Aqsa mosque

Feb. 26, 2014 12:36 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2014 12:44 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Palestine has submitted a request to the Arab League to hold an emergency session Wednesday to discuss recent Israeli attacks on the al-Aqsa mosque, an official said.

Palestinian ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra said that the recent visits of rightists protected by the Israeli army and police to al-Aqsa will lead to more tension and turn the conflict into a religious one.

“If Israel continues this policy,” he said, “it proves that it does not want peace but continues to violate international laws and resolutions.”

Al-Farra concluded that the international community must fulfill its duty to protect holy sites.
