Higher Islamic Council firmly condemns attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In a statement made public, the Higher Islamic Council (HIC) points out that the international, governmental and non-governmental organisations are called upon to materialise respect for and protection of historical monuments and humanity's universal heritage against all forms of attack, violation and disfigurement.
HIC reminds of provisions of the United Nations Charter, the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and of International Humanitarian Law, and the conventions consecrating entente and peaceful co-existence, calling all justice- and peace-loving countries to put a swift end to the repeated violations suffered by the historical, cultural and religious heritage in the occupied Palestinian territories, particularly the holy city of Al-Quds.
It also calls on all influential sides to exert the required pressures to compel the Israeli government to put a halt to its colonisation policy and its acts of provocation, namely the attempts it is making to judaise Palestinian cities, including Al-Quds city itself.
HIC adds that encroachments on the integrity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque are a serious menace to human brotherhood and only serve to feed hatred and stir conflicts and discord.
HIC asserts that Tunisia will forever be at the forefront of countries which support brotherly Palestinians so that their fight be crowned by a clear victory and end an unfair occupation which has dictated on the Palestinian people the worst forms of blockades, destruction and massacre.
