Malaysian NGOs Launch Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Condemn Israel’s Attack On The Al-Aqsa Mosque

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organisations (Mapim) and 43 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) had voiced their solidarity with the Palestinians.

In a campaign called ‘Hands Off Al-Aqsa Mosque’, the NGOs condemned Israel’s recent attack on Palestinians at the mosque during Ramadan.

The NGOs unanimously expressed their support and stood arms with the Palestinians who defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque and other places of worship in the Holy Land.

Mapim president Azmi Abdul Hamid calls on the international community to join in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

He said the Palestinian face an uphill struggle in defending Al-Aqsa, the third holiest mosque of Islam, from Zionist aggression.

“We also urge the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to address the dangerous situation at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Azmi warned that the violence would lead to further conflict between Israel and militants in Gaza.

He noted that more than 200 people, mostly Palestinians, have been hurt in clashes with Israeli police.

Azmi holds Israel responsible as they had been restricting access to Al-Aqsa, which created tensions that led to clashes.

He also regrets that some Arab nations have warmed up to Israel despite what is happening to their Muslims brethrens in Palestine.
