Mauritanian scholar calls for arming Palestinians to defend themselves

Mauritanian religious scholar Sheikh Mohammed Shankiti has championed supporting the Palestinian people with arms and money to enable them defend themselves in face of Israeli attacks.

Addressing Hamas’s inception anniversary in Gaza on Saturday, Shankiti said that Islamic scholars support his edict, adding that liberating Palestine from Israeli occupation was a religious duty.

He said, “Today we came to Gaza and tomorrow we will go to the Aqsa mosque” after its liberation.
