TEHRAN, Jul. 29 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman on Tuesday strongly condemned repeated attacks of radical Israeli settlers on al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinian worshipers.

Marzieh Afkham, while slamming the escalation of tensions and attacks on al-Aqsa Mosque, said that such moves are directly supported and guided by Tel Aviv regime.

Invasion against al-Aqsa Mosque, she said, demonstrated aggressive nature of the Zionist regime in violating human rights of the Palestinians.

The spokeswoman called for support of different countries, especially Islamic states, international and regional organizations to stop desecration of the Islamic sanctities and violation of human rights of the Palestinians.

On Sunday, Israelis broke into the al-Aqsa compound and engaged in violent clashes with Palestinians.

They stormed the al-Aqsa compound and closed its gates after the clashes erupted between Palestinian Muslim worshipers and Israelis.

Dozens of worshipers were injured and at least 6 of them were detained by Israeli forces. Many of them also suffered from suffocation due to teargas inhalation.
