Egypt denounces ‘renewed violations’ at Temple Mount

Egypt condemns an Israeli police raid on the Temple Mount that was followed by the ascent of hundreds of Jewish Israelis to the holy site to mark the Tisha B’Av fast.

The Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site, but it is also revered as the third holiest site in Islam by Muslims worldwide.

Cairo denounced “the renewed violations of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli extremists under the protection of the Israeli forces,” according to a spokesperson for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.
