The Pakistani premier stressed his country's support for the Palestinian people, calling on the international community "to take immediate action to protect Palestinians & their legitimate rights."
Israeli occupation forces have increased their attacks on Palestinian worshippers during the last ten days of Ramadan, using stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets, and sound bombs within the Al-Aqsa compound and inside the Qibli Mosque which the night prayers, known as taraweeh, were ongoing.
So far, 205 Palestinians and 17 occupation troops were injured.
