 (Jeddah-AlummahWorld-Shawwal 24,1438H)  The Council of Ministers on Monday voiced deep concern over the closure of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem by the Israeli occupation authorities and called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility to halt such practices that deeply hurt the sentiments of Muslims around the globe.

The weekly session of the Cabinet, chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah, described the Israeli act as a dangerous development that would further complicate the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Minister of Culture and Information Awwad Al-Awwad said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency following the session that the Cabinet noted that the closure of Al-Aqsa Mosque is the first of its kind in the history of the occupation. “This act constitutes a flagrant violation that deeply hurt the feelings of Muslims around the world.”
