Israel's al-Aqsa raid: Iran says Muslims must stand united behind Palestinian cause
Iran has once again lashed out at the Israeli regime for desecrating al-Aqsa Mosque, urging Muslim nations to stand united behind the Palestinian cause.

Tehran, SAEDNEWS: In a post on his Twitter account on Saturday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed outrage over the Israeli regime's new atrocities in al-Aqsa Mosque and warned against the consequences of some Arab countries' move to normalize relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

"Reminder that normalization with apartheid regime of Israel only encourages the oppressor to double down on its brutality," Khatibzadeh said.

On Saturday morning, the Israeli forces’ aggression extended inside al-Aqsa Mosque, as they stormed the mosque’s courtyards and attacked worshipers, injuring more than 150 Palestinians and arresting 400 others.

In a Friday phone call with Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian denounced the Israeli regime’s attack at al-Aqsa Mosque, saying resistance is alive while the Zionists are in desperation.

“Undoubtedly, the Zionist regime has become too weak to withstand the uprising of the Palestinian people and the resistance that created the epic of Operation al-Quds Sword,” Amir-Abdollahian said.

Also on Friday, Khatibzadeh said the Israeli regime is blatantly violating human rights principles and international law through committing crimes in al-Aqsa Mosque.

He censured the Zionists’ “shameless” acts of violence at holy sites in Palestine and against the fasting people and worshipers at the mosque in the month of Ramadan.
