President of the Mauritanian National Assembly, Sheikh Ould Ahmed Ould Bayeh, yesterday condemned the Israeli forces' invasion of Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacks on worshippers.

In a tweet, Ould Bayeh described what happened as a "flagrant defiance to the feelings of Muslims, and a violation of international law and human rights principles."

"Talking about peace runs counter to the settlement policy, confiscation of land and displacement of the owners of the land," he said.

Since the beginning of Ramadan, the city of Jerusalem has witnessed attacks by the Israeli occupation police forces and settlers, especially at Damascus Gate and the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, Israeli forces attacked worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem resulting in the injury of about 300 people, according to the Palestine Red Crescent Society.
