Al-Azhar condemned reports echoed by some media outlets claiming that the
Israeli occupation authorities have ratified establishing new settlement
projects, in the old city of Hebron and confiscating adjacent land lots to the
Ibrahimc sanctuary, in a step to facilitate jeopardizing it and going on its
Judaization plan of the this Islamic sanctuary.
In a statement announced here today, Al-Azhar reiterated total rejection of flagrant violations and escalating policies pursued by the Israeli occupation against religious and historical Palestinian landmarks, in general and the Islamic and Christian sanctuaries, in particular, in a sheer breach of the International Law and other adopted international charters, against the backdrop of the world preoccupation with confronting novel Covild-19 pandemic.
Al-Azhar urged the world community to shoulder its responsibility towards the Palestinian cause and took decisive resolutions to stop the absurd Israeli occupation acts and repeated disparaging of the Palestinian people rights on its territories and against its sanctuaries, including confiscating its right to establish independent state, with Al-Quds (Eastern Jerusalem) as its capital.
