Al-Habbash: The occupation's attacks on Palestinian holy sites are a war crime

Occupied Jerusalem (ST): Palestinian Supreme Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash affirmed that the ongoing Israeli attacks on holy sites in the occupied city of Jerusalem are a war crime.

WAFA news agency reported that Al-Habbash condemned in a statement the new crime that the occupation forces committed last night when they stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque at the time of the evening and "Taraweeh Prayers" and on the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan and when they cut off the electricity wires from the mosque's minarets, which prevented the call to prayer from being raised through loudspeakers.

He added that the series of daily crimes carried out by the occupation against Al-Aqsa include imposing siege on it and preventing Palestinians from visiting it, in addition to increasing the frequency of daily incursions by extremist settlers and carrying out provocative tours in its courtyards.

Al-Habbash called on the international community and the United Nations agencies, led by the Education, Culture and Science Organization (UNESCO), to take practical measures to protect the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, warning at the same time against the continued silence of the international community over the crimes of the occupation in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

Czech Journalist: Western media ignore the criminal practices of the Turkish regime in Syria

Prague (ST): Czech journalist specialized in Middle East affairs, Markita Kotilova, has criticized the Western media for ignoring the criminal practices committed by the Turkish regime in Syria, including its crimes against women and children in the areas it occupies in the Syrian lands.

In a commentary she published on her Facebook page, Kotilova said that Western media expresses dissatisfaction with the bad treatment that the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, received recently in Ankara by the President of the Turkish regime, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, although what happened is only a new example of Erdogan’s view of women.

Kotilova pointed out that it is unfortunate that the whole world is interested in the absence of a chair on which the President of the European Commission sits, while no one cares about the Syrian women who suffer in the areas occupied by Turkey in Syria, and all the tragedies committed by the Turkish occupier are ignored.

International community’s silence over the Israeli settlement building crime indicate international collusion: Palestinian Foreign Ministry

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry has reaffirmed that the silence of the international community over the Israeli crime of settlement building is a kind of collusion with the occupation and a form of participation in this crime, stressing that this silence gives Israel the time to complete its crime and form a cover to impose a fait accompli.

In a statement reported by WAFA news agency, the ministry clarified that the Israeli occupation is expanding settlement operations in the West Bank to implement colonial annexation plans and eliminate any opportunity for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital.
