Egypt has denounced the renewed violations of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli extremists under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces, a statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry said on Sunday.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez reiterated Egypt's categorical rejection of these violations, drawing attention to Egypt's constant warnings against breaching the sanctity of the holy site, which is revered as the third holiest site in Islam by Muslims worldwide.

Hafez also held the Israeli occupation authorities responsible for keeping worshipers safe at the holy site to maintain security and stability.

Israel must also abstain from any acts that could trigger an escalation, the spokesman noted, urging the Israeli authorities to go forward with reviving peace talks based on international law and relevant UN resolutions to achieve a two-state solution.
