The Malaysian government strongly condemned the brutal attack by Israeli forces at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

In a statement through Wisma Putra, Malaysia said the action of Israel’s security forces is against universal law.

Malaysia added that Israel violated the principle of freedom under the global human rights of the Palestinian people.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had also spoken out against the Israelis on the international stage.

On the morning of 5 April, Israeli police raided the mosque before attacking and arresting more than 400 worshipers, claiming that the group were troublemakers.

However, witnesses claimed that the Israeli forces used violence by throwing tear gas at the congregation as they prayed and recited the Quran.

The Israeli police are also accused of brutally beating the pilgrims and preventing volunteers from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society from coming to help the injured victims there.

In Solidarity With The People Of Palestine

Malaysians from all walks of life have also taken a swipe at the Israelis.

The Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organisations (Mapim) said the Zionist regime would not stop deploying its occupation forces in the Al Aqsa mosque during Ramadhan.

Mapim president Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid said the tension is escalating daily.

Worshippers are again being targeted by the Israeli troops storming into the mosque.

The regime seems determine to block access and to expel worshippers who demand their right to stay in the mosque to perform i’tikaf. The tense situation heightens as there is a plan for Israeli settler incursions and agitations for animal sacrifice rituals starting tomorrow (8 April).

He pointed out that at least 240 Palestinians were injured inside the al-Aqsa, with two seriously injured.

Mohd Azmi calls on all Muslim leaders and Muslims globally to stage a strong condemnation and protest against the illegal terrorist state of Israel.

He said there could be no compromise on the desecration with disrespect for the holy al-Aqsa.

He also called on Muslim leaders to end any form of normalization with Israel, and the highest level of international pressure must be applied to Israel.

Meanwhile, the Allied Coordinating Committee of Islamic NGOs (ACCIN) described the brutal assault on worshippers at Al Aqsa mosque by the Israeli occupation forces as uncalled for.

ACCIN chief executive officer Jamal Shamsudin said the Zionist forces fail to see that the world is watching, especially through social media.

He said the Zionist regime is rapidly losing in the court of public opinion, especially in the West.

No amount of well-funded Islamophobia and anti-Palestine campaigns will change public opinion towards their apartheid regime. The brutality is now assessed the world over through the social media

Deep-seated Religious, Political, And Historical Differences

The conflict surrounding Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is complex and multifaceted.

It has been a source of tension between Israelis and Palestinians for many years, resulting in numerous violent clashes and protests.

At the heart of the conflict is the question of who has sovereignty over the mosque and its surrounding area, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif and Jews as the Temple Mount.

The area is considered holy by both Muslims and Jews and is a significant symbol of their respective faiths.

Israel considers the area part of its territory and maintains control, while the Palestinian Authority claims sovereignty as part of a future Palestinian state.
