The Palestinian Forum in Britain (PFB) expressed Thursday outrage over the international complete silence towards the Israeli recent escalation in al-Aqsa mosque.
The forum’s statement came after Israeli authorities decided to ban Palestinian worshipers and sit-inners’ entry into al-Aqsa mosque while facilitating settlers’ access under the pretext of Jewish holidays.
