Iran condemns zionist settlers encroachment on al-Aqsa Mosque compound during provocative march

Iran has strongly condemned the desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli settlers and their violent assaults and racist slogans against Palestinians, during a provocative annual march marking the occupation of East al-Quds.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani made the remarks on Wednesday after thousands of extremist settlers encroached on the al-Aqsa Mosque compound during the so-called “flag march,” with some attacking Palestinians and journalists while chanting racist slogans against Palestinians.

“The extremist Zionists’ provocative desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque, which was carried out with the support of the usurping regime’s military and security forces amid the apartheid entity’s genocide and crimes in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, show Tel Aviv is bent to escalate the crisis in Palestine and the region,” he said.

Kan’ani also emphasized that Palestine and al-Aqsa Mosque are revered by all the true followers of Abrahamic religions.

“Through such insulting and provocative actions, the racist Zionist cult will gain nothing but global hatred, especially from Muslim nations,” he added.

“The child-killing and occupying Israeli regime is now more isolated than ever, and undoubtedly, such moves will only result in the regime’s further isolation and more hatred towards it.”

Hamas denounced the Israeli parade as a “blatant aggression” against Arabs and Muslims.

It further called on Arab and Islamic nations and the freedom-seeking people of the world to escalate pressure on the occupation and its supporters, and to expose Israeli atrocities against the innocent Palestinians.

The head of the political bureau of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, decried the “rampage of settlers,” saying the Israeli march “re-asserts that al-Quds is the core of the conflict.”

“Our people will not rest until the occupation ends,” he vowed in a statement.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance group said the Zionists think that by attacking al-Aqsa Mosque, they may “compensate for some of the humiliation inflicted upon them by the Palestinian people and its fighters” in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out its historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

So far, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 36,586 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 83,074 others in the Gaza Strip.
