In video - Palestinian presidency condemns Israeli escalation at Al-Aqsa

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian presidency condemned the Israeli escalation at Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, on Tuesday, warning of "grave consequences" for its actions against Palestinians and worshipers in the city and inside the compound, particularly the attacks by Israeli forces against women and men inside the Dome of the Rock.

The presidency called on the international community to intervene and to put a stop to the Israeli escalation and violations of the sanctity of the Muslim holy site that provoke the feelings of millions of Muslims around the world.

The presidency specifically mentioned the desecration by an Israeli police officer of the Bab al-Rahma (Gate of Mercy) prayer area, when he entered with his shoes on and walked over the prayer carpets.

It added that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is contacting all parties, particularly Kingdom of Jordan, to force Israel to stop this escalation.

Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, including the Dome of the Rock, and physically assaulted Muslim worshipers before forcing them to leave the premises and sealed off all its gates.
