The Qatari capital hosts a three-day conference on Jerusalem called "International Conference for the Defence of Occupied Jerusalem."

Some 350 representatives from Arab, Islamic and other countries will discuss "the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation, the reality and the future of Jerusalem under occupation, and the status of the holy places under international law," the Qatar News Agency reported.

The three-day conference comes amid continued attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and to show solidarity with the holy city of Jerusalem in the face of Israeli threats.

The conference was approved during the 22nd Arab League Summit in Sirte, Libya in March 2010.
