Bangladesh condemns Israeli attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque

Update : 07 Apr 2023, 01:26

Bangladesh has strongly condemned the violence unleashed against innocent worshippers and civilians at the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem by occupied Israeli forces during prayers on Wednesday early morning.

"Bangladesh expresses deep concerns over the violations of basic civil norms, international human rights laws and international accords by the Israeli forces," a foreign ministry's press release said on Thursday, reports BSS.

It said Bangladesh believes that the freedom of religion must be held as a fundamental human right and the right of practicing religious rituals, particularly in the holy month of Ramadan must be ensured.

Bangladesh also urges the international community to take sustained measures to end such repeated violence in the occupied territories against international norms.

Bangladesh reiterates its support for inalienable rights of the people of Palestine for a sovereign and independent homeland and reaffirms its position in favor of establishing an independent state of Palestine on the basis of two-state solution, said the release.
