PUTRAJAYA MAY 8: Malaysia strongly condemns the incursion and attacks by the Israeli Occupation Forces and Israeli settlers against the Palestinian civilians and worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque on 7th May 2021.
Foreign Minister, Datuk Seri Hishmmuddin Tun Hussein said, such heinous acts must be strongly denounced and Israeli government be held responsible and accountable for the flagrant violation of human rights and international law.
“Many Palestinians have been injured in the attacks. The targeted aggression against the worshippers during the prayers in the final days of Holy Ramadan in Al Aqsa Mosque is indeed contemptuous to all Muslims and humanity.
“Malaysia also strongly condemns all forced evictions of Palestinians from their homes including those in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of East Jerusalem,”
Hishammuddin said in a statement here today.
Hishammuddin added, Malaysia calls upon the international community to act swiftly and decisively to respond to the latest Israeli aggressions.
Hishammuddin reiterated, Malaysia continues to stand in strong solidarity with the people of Palestine in the wake of the Israel aggressions.
Malaysia reaffirms its unwavering support for the Palestinians and their cause for achieving freedom from the Israel illegal occupation, and realising their aspiration for an independent State of Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem as their Capital. –Malaysia World News
