UAE condemns Ben Gvir Temple Mount visit

The United Arab Emirates foreign ministry condemns National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir’s visit this morning to Jerusalem’s flashpoint Temple Mount.

“The UAE has strongly condemned the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque by the Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben-Gvir, who has previous racist positions and statements,” the UAE foreign ministry says in a statement, calling for “full protection of the Al-Aqsa Mosque” and an end to “provocative violations.”

The ministry says it “called upon Israeli authorities to halt escalation and avoid exacerbating tension and instability in the region, affirming the UAE’s rejection of all practices that violate resolutions on international legitimacy and threaten further escalation.”
