Palestinian protesters run during clashes with Israeli forces following a protest to denounce the annual nationalist flag march through Jerusalem, near the Beit El settlement at the northern entrance to the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on May 29, 2022. AFP
The Foreign Ministry in a statement on Tuesday said the premeditated incursion on the Holy Site of the Muslims and the rallies of the flag march in the Old City was clearly a provocation and a flagrant violation against the revered Holy Site and its sanctities.
“This latest raid on the Al-Aqsa Mosque was undoubtedly an act of aggression by the Israeli occupation regime and Israeli extremists, unduly fanning the flames of tensions among the region and beyond,” the statement read.
Malaysia called upon the international community to immediately demand the Israel regime to cease any provocative acts in the interest of peace and stability, said Wisma Putra.
“Malaysia stands strong in solidarity with the people of Palestine, and reiterates the status of AlQuds Al-Sharif as the Holy site of the Muslim Ummah,” it said.
Malaysia also reaffirmed its unwavering support and solidarity with the Palestinians and their cause to achieve freedom from the Israeli illegal occupation and realize their aspirations for an independent State of Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as their Capital.
