The council called on the Muslim nation to unify efforts to support Quds (Jerusalem) and al-Aqsa Mosque.
Last week, the Israeli forces installed new security cameras at the entrance to Jerusalem’s holy sites, as Israeli officials said that it was considering as alternatives to the metal detectors that raised tensions in the last few days and was rejected by Palestinians, resulting in vast demonstrations.
In an official statement following the meeting, the council said that the "Israeli terror” not only violates al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinians, but also all free Muslims all over the world, rejecting Israeli violations, which threatened international peace, calling on Muslim leaders and regional and international organizations to take strict positions to stop the Zionist terror and prevent any changes in the historical status quo of al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the Daily News.
"The Muslim Council of Elders asserts that the violations against the Palestinian people and its holy places are a real terrorism that are banned by all international laws. The council warns that the continuing of these violations will disturb any chance for talking about peace and will trigger a religious war that may destroy the whole region, and this calls on the international community and international organizations to treat neutrally with the issue and to assert the right of Palestinian people to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital city,” the statement read.
