Fattouh condemns the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and stresses that national unity is the way to confront the Israeli aggression

The Speaker of the Palestinian National Council (PNC), Mr. Rawhi Fattouh, condemned the Israeli occupation army’s storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and brutally assaulting and harassing worshipers.
In a statement issued by Fattouh today, Friday, he considered that the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque at dawn today, represents an unprecedented escalation, and a provocation that cannot be tolerated for the feelings of the Arab and Islamic nations, and all the free people in the world.
This barbaric intrusion also comes in the context of the comprehensive war waged by the occupying state and its settlers against our people by continuing cold-blooded killings and executions, and continuing campaigns of arrest and settlement that included all Palestinian lands, Fattouh said.
The Israeli occupation seeks - through its brutal war on our people - to consolidate complete occupying control over Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, Fattouh added, this is a try to isolate Al-Aqsa Mosque in a desperate attempt to break the will of the Palestinian people, and try to discourage them from continuing to adhere to rights and struggle to achieve them.
Fattouh called on the international community, the Arab and Islamic nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, and all parliaments in the world to intervene urgently in order to stop this barbaric aggression that targets the Palestinian people and all their Christian and Islamic sanctities.
PNC Speaker saluted the valiant masses of Palestinian people, in all the governorates of the country, for their cohesion and united response against the Israeli occupation and its gangs of settlers. He also saluted in particular Palestinian people in Jerusalem and those stationed in Al-Aqsa Mosque who confronted the aggression while they were unarmed, and thwarted the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque at dawn today, stressing that the unity of Palestinian people in all their places of residence is the only way to confront the continuous aggression and thwart its goals and plans.

The PNC represents the supreme authority of the Palestinian people in all their places of residence. It sets PLO policies and plans to achieve the goals of the Palestinian people for self-determination, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.After Al-Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, headed by Haj Amin Al-Husseini, decided to call for the convening of a Palestine National Council which met in Gaza in 1October 1948, which was the first Palestinian legislative authority to be established in the Arab state of Palestine. The Council then formed an all-Palestine government headed by Hilmi Abdel Baqi, who represented Palestine in the league of Arab States.The first national conference was held inJerusalem on 28May -2June 1964. This first National Council had 422 members, declared the establishment of the PlO, which represents the leadership of the Palestinian Arab people.
