Jerusalem is Our Red Line…

Jerusalem is the holy, untouchable city of humanity. Israel's intervention against this immunity was carried out against humanity. The first qibla of our sacred place is the Masjid, Aqsa, and these attacks against the Muslims who worship there on these blessed days will go down in history as a black mark.

In these days when we realize the holy month of Ramadan, the invading administration, which does not recognize and respect any sacred and humanitarian values, once again showed its bloody face and attacked the Muslims who gathered in Masjid al-Aqsa, the first qibla of Muslims, and as a result of these attacks, 9 of them were children. Our innocent Palestinian brothers were martyred and hundreds of our Palestinian brothers were injured.

In the first qibla of Muslims and the sacred place of the heavenly religions, Masjid Aqsa, the inhumane practices of Israel are embarrassing to our Palestinian brothers. Israel's intensification of these arbitrary actions on exceptional days such as the Night of Power has deeply injured the entire Islamic world.

Jerusalem and our holy places are our red line. I call on the occupying forces to end these reckless attacks aimed at changing the status of Aqsa in Jerusalem and the Masjid, their attempts to usurp the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, and to abandon their attempts to prevent Muslims from performing their worship freely, which is their most natural right. I strongly condemn these attacks against the independent and free Palestinian state, whose capital is Jerusalem, against the Masjid Aqsa, and wish mercy from Allah to the Palestinians who were martyred as a result of Israeli attacks, and urgent healing to the wounded.
