The general secretariat of the Arab League said an extraordinary meeting will be held at the level of Arab foreign ministers on Tuesday to probe recent crimes and aggressions of Israeli forces against the Palestinians.

Assistant Arab League Secretary General Hosam Zaki said on Sunday that a number of Arab countries voted for holding the virtual meeting at the request of Palestine.

The ministers are set to discuss crimes, aggressions and violations by Israeli occupation forces against Palestinians in Al-Quds, including the forced displacement of residents of Sheikh Jarrah district in Al-Quds.

Egypt on Friday condemned in the strongest terms the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the attack on Palestinian worshippers by Israeli police.

The Foreign Ministry called on the Israeli authorities to honor their responsibilities under international law by providing the necessary protection for Palestinian civilians and respecting their right to perform their religious rituals.

The ministry also urged Israel to stop any actions that violate the sanctity of Al Aqsa, the third holiest Muslim shrine, and the holy month of Ramadan, expressing rejection of all Israeli attempts to alter the Arab, Islamic and Christian identity of Al Quds and obliterate its historical and legal status
