Israeli attacks on Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque are a "blatant violation", Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan, announced yesterday.

"Strongly condemn Israeli Forces' attack esp during Ramazan on Palestinians in Qibla-e-Awaal, Al-Aqsa Mosque, violating all norms of humanity and international law," Khan said on Twitter.

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.
