He also condemned the recent reckless measures by the Israeli authorities in Al-Aqsa Mosque, preventing Palestinians from praying in it, to be added to the former similar violations.
Al-Zayani urged the international community to take deterrent procedures against Israel's "continuous violations which contribute to providing a favorable environment for extremism and terrorism".
