In a statement released on Sunday, Bahram Qasemi said, Palestine is still the top issue of the Muslim world and the Zionists are the main source of terrorism.'

The spokesman urged the media, public opinion, people and free thinkers to take actions against the Zionists' anti-human measures and to support the Palestinians.

The Zionist regime prohibited Palestinians from entering the al-Aqsa Mosque on two consecutive Fridays. The Zionists urged the Palestinian prayers to go through electronic gates but they disobeyed.
