Mohammad Sabih, assistant secretary general of the Arab League, called for urgent precaution against Israel oppression of Palestinian people. He said things going on in Al-Aqsa is a message for Arab and Islam world.
"We strongly condemn the cruelty," said Mohammad Sabih. "It is a violation of human rights and a disrespect to Jerusalem, our sacred values and Muslim people," he said.
