The Ambassador emphasized Iraq’s continued and unlimited support for the just Palestinian cause and the steadfastness of the Palestinian people, and with regards to recent events, the government of the Republic of Iraq urgently condemned the Israeli army’s incursion into Masjid Al-Aqsa to practice acts of intimidation and spreading of terror amongst unarmed Muslim worshipers.
H.E. added that what happened in the attacks in Masjid Al-Aqsa, and the unlawful decisions issued by the unjust occupation authorities as well as the brutal attacks that followed against our people in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and its adjacent neighborhoods in occupied Jerusalem is nothing but a new crime to be added to the record of the occupation crimes of the Israeli usurper.
