Al-Azhar calls for protection of Jerusalem mosque

CAIRO: Al-Azhar renewed its rejection of the ongoing Israeli presence in Jerusalem on Friday.

Grand Imam Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb called on Arabic, Islamic and international organizations to protect Al-Aqasa Mosque in a statement.

“I appeal to entire civilized world to save humanity,” he said.

He cautioned Israel against threatening peace in the region, and said that any “aggression” on the landmarks of the Temple Mount would be a “red line.”
