The Palestinians argue that “Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound is located in East Jerusalem, an internationally recognized part of the Occupied State of Palestine.”
Israel’s claim over East Jerusalem, the PLO goes on to say, is not recognized by the international community “in line with UN Security Council Resolution 478.”
“This Resolution rejected the Israeli measure as a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and determined that: ‘All legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which have altered or purport to alter the character and the status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, and in particular, the recent ‘basic law’ on Jerusalem, are null and void.'”
The PLO accuses the Israeli government of continuing “to incite against this sacred site, and consequently provoke Palestinian fears and anger.
