Press Release Regarding The Intrusion Of The Israeli Police Into Haram Al-sharif , 13.09.2015

No: 252, 13 September 2015

We strongly condemn the intrusion of the Israeli security forces into Haram Al-Sharif in the morning hours of 13 September clashing with the Muslim groups inside and blocking the entry of the Muslims for a certain period of time by using force.

Israel should fulfill its obligation to ensure the freedom of worship in East Jerusalem still under its occupation and should immediately terminate these illegal practices aiming at the status and sanctity of Haram Al-Sharif, which are clear violations of the freedom of worship.
