Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Saturday strongly condemned Israel’s closure of the Al Aqsa Mosque and the banning of Friday prayers for the first time since 1969, describing it as a crime, a serious precedent, a blatant transgression against a holy site and an attack on the rights and freedom of Palestinians to practice their religious rites.

Israeli authorities shut the area, which is holy to both Muslims and Jews, after a shooting attack.

OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen warned of the Israeli occupation’s attempts to impose new facts inside Al Aqsa mosque, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

He called on the international community to act immediately to deter repeated Israeli attacks against Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Al Quds and to stop Israel’s racist violations and crimes against the Palestinian people and their holy sites.
