CAIRO/JEDDAH: The Saudi Cabinet on Monday reaffirmed the Kingdom’s condemnation of Israel’s new measures at Al-Aqsa Mosque while the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) warned that the issue “is a red line” for Muslims ahead of an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council (UNSC) to discuss recent violence in occupied Palestine.
In New York, UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov warned that a solution was needed by Friday to the crisis, which he said threatens to have “potential catastrophic costs well beyond the walls of the Old City.”
