Lebanon's PM-designate condemns Al-Aqsa clashes
Lebanon's Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri on Monday condemned Israeli aggressions against Al- Aqsa Mosque and Palestinians in Jerusalem, the country's state news agency reported.
Hariri said this aggression was motivated against Christian and Islamic religious sites in Jerusalem, adding that it totally went in the opposite direction to what Israeli officials speak of peace and security in the world, Xinhua reported.
Clashes erupted earlier Sunday between Palestinians and the Israeli police in the eastern part of Jerusalem, as a group of Jewish radicals broke into the yard of al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest shrine to Muslims.
About 16 Palestinians and several Israeli police were injured in the clashes, according to local report.
Hariri asked international community to press Israel to cease all violations, calling on Arabs and Muslims to stand in one row in face of Israel's aspirations against Palestinians and the region.
