The battle to defend Jerusalem and its sanctities is a duty of the Arab and Islamic nations

The Palestinian National Council (PNC) asserted that the battle to defend Jerusalem with its Islamic and Christian sanctities is the battle of the Arab and Islamic nations and the free world, and it is no longer acceptable to leave its people alone to defend it against the Israeli aggression.

PNC stressed in a statement today that the Israeli occupation forces stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque and its courtyards and attacked the worshipers, guards, workers and citizens, and then closed the doors of Al-Aqsa Mosque after forcing people to leave. The occupation has proved to be in its plan to take over this sacred place for Muslims, with the ultimate goal of dividing Al-Aqsa Mosque both spatially and temporally.

PNC called upon the Arab and Islamic institutions, especially the League of Arab States, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab and Islamic Parliamentary Unions, to implement all its resolutions concerning the city of Jerusalem, and not only releasing statements of condemnation. Jerusalem, its sanctities and its people need actual support.

PNC called upon the international community to take urgent action to stop the dangerous aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque and to stop closing the Mosque before the worshipers, and to stop the policy of silence towards the procedures and policies of occupation in the occupied city of Jerusalem, and try to tamper with and sanctify the holiest religious places of Muslims, and hold Israel responsible for dragging the region into a religious war that will not rid the world of its repercussions.

The Palestinian National Council saluted the steadfastness of the holy men, women, children and young people for their defense of their city and its holy sites, stressing that our people continue to make sacrifices in defense of their eternal right in the capital of their eternal state, including its Al-Aqsa Mosque and Resurrection Church.

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. The most important of which is the Palestinian National Charter, the Statutes of the Organization and others, and Mr. Ahmad Al-Shukairy was elected Chairman of the PlO.
