The Arab League on Sunday announced that they supported Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's call for an "emergency meeting" of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to discuss Israeli attacks on the mosque "Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa" in Jerusalem.
Muhammad Sabih, Deputy Secretary General of the Arab League in charge of Palestine and Arab territories under occupation, in a statement made in Cairo, said that "the Arab League supports President Abbas's call for an 'emergency meeting'."
"The Israeli administration should know that Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa is untouchable. The mosque is a red line," Sabih underlined.
Israeli Police on Friday conducted a raid against Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa.
Israeil police officers used tear gas and plastic bullets against Palestinians protesting Israel at the mosque. Some of the Palestinians were detained by Israeli police officers.
President Mahmoud Abbas's call to the OIC for an "emergency meeting" came on Saturday.
