PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Friday joined thousands of Muslims for Friday prayers and special prayers (solat hajat) at Putra Mosque, here, for the safety of Palestinians facing Israeli atrocities.

Earlier, Najib heard a special sermon delivered by the chief imam of the mosque, Abdul Manaf Mat, titled "Tears of Gaza" on the tragedy befalling the Palestians in Gaza.

Also seen among the congregation was Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

Israel's military shellings on Gaza since last week have left more than 100 Gazans dead, including children and the elderly, and injured hundreds of others.

Two days ago, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom was reported to have called on mosques and surau to hold "solat hajat" and reciting of Qunut Nazilah for the safety of Palestians and as a show of Malaysia's support for them.

Other main mosques under the jurisdiction of the Malaysia Islamic Development Department, namely the National Mosque, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque and the Federal Territory Mosque, as well as other mosques in the federal territories also held the special prayers and delivered the special Friday sermon. - Bernama
