Egypt's Foreign Minister has condemned the attack by Israeli settlers on a mosque in the village of Qusra in the occupied West Bank. Mohammed Amr said that the occurrence of such criminal acts with no decisive intervention by the Israeli occupation authorities is yet more evidence of Israel's disregard for the cultural and social rights of Palestinians.
According to spokesman Amr Rushdy, the Egyptian Foreign Minister stressed that the Israeli government as the occupying power is legally responsible for providing full protection for Palestinian citizens and religious establishments in the Occupied Territories. Israel must, he added, also protect the Palestinians' right to worship and practice their religion with full freedom.
