No: 246, 15 August 2019, Press Release Regarding The Status Of Al-aqsa Mosque

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 15.08.2019

We utterly reject the statements of the Israeli Minister of Public Security regarding changing the status quo in the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This is an indication of a distorted mindset.

It is clear that any insinuation and initiative to prejudice the historical and legal status of Jerusalem will further exacerbate the tension in the region.

In fact, during the Eid al-Adha, many Palestinians were wounded as a result of the intervention by the Israeli police inside the Haram al-Sharif, while trying to prevent provocative raids by some extremist Jewish groups against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Israeli authorities should be urged to put an end to their illegal practices in the occupied Palestinian territories and to avoid irresponsible actions and statements that will increase tensions in the region.
