Amr Mousa, the Arab League secretary general, has denounced the Israeli storming of the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Al-Quds (Jerusalem), describing it as an insult to Arabs.
Mousa said that the Israeli occupation authority's continued violation of holy places in Palestinian lands was in complete disregard of the Arab politics.
He told reporters after meeting with the foreign minister of New Zealand that the Arab foreign ministers would discuss the Israeli violations on Wednesday along with means of confronting them.
The Israeli annexation of the Ibrahimi mosque was "illegal" and would not be recognized or accepted, he said, leaving the matter to the Arab foreign ministers on how to deal with the issue.
In a related context, the violent quelling by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) of the protest demonstrations in occupied Al-Quds left 20 Palestinians wounded and 11 detained.
The Quds center for social and economic rights said that the 11 Jerusalemites were kidnapped in the vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque during the clashes between the unarmed protestors and the IOF soldiers.
The center said that six of the wounded were hit with rubber bullets, including two young girls, while 12 suffered breathing difficulties and two suffered fractures, including a 40-year-old woman.
It pointed out that the events started after the IOF soldiers closed all gates of the Old City since the dawn hours and prevented citizens less than 50 years old form entering but allowed Jewish fanatic groups to stroll inside the Aqsa under the guise of tourists.
