Attack on Masjid Al-Aqsa Statement

April 16, 2022 /

The brutal attacks by Israeli soldiers on unarmed Palestinian worshippers at Masjid Al-Aqsa are inhumane.

This follows a significant increase in the violence against Palestinians living under apartheid illegal occupation.

If worshippers, journalists, medics and others had been brutally attacked at any other of the world’s holiest sites, the world would be in an uproar. It would be all over the news. But it is not.

Masjid Al-Aqsa is the third holiest site in Islam and this attack took place on the holiest day of the week for Muslims, in the holiest month of the year. This is not the first time Al-Aqsa has been desecrated by Israeli soldiers.

We call for sanctions to be imposed on Israel. We also request individuals to boycott all Israeli products and goods. NGO’s and civil societies are requested to hold protests and lobby their respective governments to hold Israel to account.
