Palestinians in Europe push for urgent action over Israeli crimes
Palestinians in Europe Organization urged on Sunday the European states to take immediate action as regards the simmering Israeli violations in Occupied Jerusalem.
Palestinians in Europe dubbed Israel’s aggressions on the Islamic and Christian holy sites flagrant breaches to the international and humanitarian conventions.
The organization called on the international community and human rights institutions to work on securing Muslims’ freedom of worship, lift Israel’s noose around Palestinians’ neck at al-Aqsa Mosque, and immediately put an end to the Israeli break-ins at the site.
It further warned of Israeli intents to divide the site between Muslims and Jews.
The group condemned, in the strongest terms, the incessant Israeli crimes against the Palestinians in Occupied Jerusalem and the preplanned schemes of forced deportation and ethnic cleansing perpetrated through extrajudicial executions.
On Friday, the Israeli occupation forces banned Muslim prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—following a shootout between three Palestinian anti-occupation youths. The gunfight claimed the lives of the three Palestinians. Two Israeli soldiers were pronounced dead.
