Arab League condemns Jewish settlers' incursion into Al-Aqsa Mosque

CAIRO, Aug 7 (KUNA) -- The Arab League on Sunday condemned the storming by Jewish settlers into the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the pretext of marking the Tisha B'Av (Ninth of Av) anniversary of the destruction of the so-called Temple Mount.
In a statement, the League affirmed that those violations coincided with the brutal attacks on Gaza Strip risk inflaming a larger cycle of violence and provoking the Palestinian people.
The League held the Israeli government full responsibility for the consequences of all such provocations since the incursions took place under Israeli police protection. (end) mfm.asm.gaa
