Israel to stay away from the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The mosque is located on the Temple Mount, which Judaism teaches is the holiest site in the world.
the Arab League statement termed the mosque “the holiest of the Arab
and Islamic holy sites.” Normally, Mecca is considered the holiest site
to Islam and Muslims in Jerusalem pray facing Mecca with their backs to
the Temple Mount.
The statement warned the “occupation
authorities” against interfering with the mosque. “The city of Al-Quds
[Jerusalem] and at its head the Al-Aqsa Mosque, is a red line that must
not be crossed, and any attack on it will definitely endanger the safety and stability of the entire region,” it stated.
