No: 134, 21 May 2023, Press Release Regarding the Raid of the Israeli Minister of National Security on Al-Haram Al-Sharif

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 21.05.2023

We strongly condemn the storming of Al-Haram Al-Sharif on 21 May by the Israeli Minister of National Security under the protection of Israeli security forces in clear breach of the international law.

It is in no way acceptable that Israeli Government members challenge the historical status of Al-Haram Al-Sharif in this manner and commit inflammatory and fascistic actions.

We call on the Israeli Government once again to act responsibly, and to put an end to all kinds of provocative actions violating the historical status of Al-Haram Al-Sharif that is based on the international law.
