0 Foreign Ministry Vehemently Denounces Israeli Likud Officials' Calls for Storming al-Aqsa Mosque

DAMASCUS, (SANA)- The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry vehemently denounced reports by news agencies on statements made by officials from the Israeli Likud Party in which they called for storming al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Palestinian territories on Sunday.

"The ministry considers such declaration as a very serious development and comes in the framework of the systematic provocation to attack a Mosque that enjoys a religious status and a referential value among all the Muslims in the world," said a press statement issued by the Ministry's official spokesman.
The Ministry called on the international community to assume its responsibilities towards this serious development.
The statement, which SANA got a copy of, said that the city of Jerusalem is still under the Israeli occupation and that it is the responsibility of the Israeli occupation authorities to protect the properties and sanctities that are under occupation.
"Israel will bear the consequences and implications of this uncalculated venture," added the statement, saying that the holy al-Aqsa Mosque is "much more than a card to be used up in the elections of an entity that has been evading the requirements of the just and comprehensive peace."
The statement considered the Israeli calls to storm al-Aqsa Mosque as "a direct threat and disregard for the feelings of the Arabs and the Muslims everywhere."
