Israel continues to violate Palestinian rights with impunity

A human rights organization denounces that the Israeli regime continues to violate the rights of Palestinians in the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Israel continues to violate the rights of the Palestinian nation, for example, by arbitrarily prohibiting entry into the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Al-Quds, demolition of homes and arrests without a warrant, criticizes the Euro-Mediterranean Observatory on Human Rights (Euro-Med).

In a report released Tuesday, Euro-Med condemns, in particular, attacks by Israeli forces on Palestinian worshippers in the Bab Al-Rahma (Golden Gate) area of Al-Aqsa, and restrictions on their religious freedom, according to the official Palestinian news agency, WAFA.

After referring to Israel’s closure of the Al-Aqs Mosque in March, the oenegee presents testimonies and photographs of dozens of Palestinian worshippers attacked and detained for their demand that Bab al-Rahma be kept open for prayers.

Israeli restrictions on Palestinians in Al-Quds violate their civil, political and religious rights, as well as violating international law, the organization insists.

Faced with such a situation, it calls on the international community to assume its responsibilities to the Palestinians and protect them as residents of an occupied area under United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque is an extremely important place for Muslims. Israel, which considers itself the main owner of the Palestinian territories, dreams of destroying the mosque and transforming it into a Jewish temple.

For their part, the Palestinian authorities have warned that the “closure” and “attacks on the faithful” in Al-Quds, as well as any measures that change the religious and historical status of the mosque will further deteriorate the situation and cause an escalation of tension in the occupied Palestinian city.
