There has been an increase in violence between Israel and the Palestinians, and on Sunday, dozens of presidents and senior officials from Arab and Islamic nations denounced recent Israeli actions in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, the president of Egypt, King Abdullah II of Jordan, and Mahmoud Abbas, the president of Palestine, were among the many foreign ministers and senior officials who attended the Arab League summit in Cairo.
Speakers at the forum denounced Israel’s “unilateral policies,” including the settlement expansion and home demolitions in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
They also denounced Israeli officials’ excursions to the city’s contentious holy site, which is revered by Muslims and Jews and frequently serves as the focal point of Israeli-Palestinian violence.
The Israeli administration was silent right away.
Additionally, the representatives expressed their support for Jordan’s custody of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.
The mosque is situated on the Temple Mount, a hilltop in Jerusalem’s Old City that is the most sacred place for Jews since it was the location of their ancient temples.
