ALECSO condemns detention of Grand Mufti of Al-Quds and the Palestinian Territories by Israeli occupation forces

The Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) has condemned the detention, by the Israeli occupation forces, of Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, Grand Mufti of Al-Quds and the Palestinian Territories, on Friday July 14, 2017.
Sheikh Mohamed Hussein had delivered the Friday Sermon at “Bab Al-Asbat” in East Al-Quds, after the Israeli occupation forces had prevented him, earlier the same day, from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said in his Sermon : “No power on earth can prevent us from reaching Al-Aqsa Mosque and performing prayers there.”
ALECSO considers that the detention of the Grand Mufti of Al-Quds adds to the record of daily aggressions perpetrated by the Israeli occupation forces against the steadfast Palestinian people and their symbols. It thus exhorts the international community to act for preventing the recurrence of these aggressions, and for finding a fair and durable solution to the Palestinian Cause.
