The Libyan Foreign Ministry condemned Saturday the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque by the occupying Israeli army and their attacks on civilians, calling on the international community to protect the Palestinian people.

The Libyan Foreign Ministry also condemned the Israeli attacks on people praying at Al-Aqsa Mosque during the holy month of Ramadan, as well as the forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in Eastern Jerusalem, warning that such violent acts by the occupying Israeli army forces are violations of international law and international humanitarian law, in addition to being a hindrance to comprehensive peace in the region.

Libya also urged the international community to take up its legal and moral responsibilities toward protecting the Palestinian people as they seek to practice their religion at peace inside the sacred places such as Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Since the start of Ramadan last month, the occupying Israeli army and army-linked settlers have been attacking civilian Palestinians, especially in Bab Al-Amoud and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhoods. On Friday, 205 Palestinians were injured by the brutality of the occupying Israeli soldiers who attacked civilians praying at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
