PETALING JAYA: The Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (Abim) has strongly condemned the attack on worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Palestine by Israeli forces.
Abim president Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz said this in a statement on Saturday (May 8) in reference to reports that Israeli police had stormed the mosque on Friday night (May 7), wounding nearly 200 worshippers.
He also urged the international community to express their solidarity with Palestinians.
He said the "barbaric" act was perpetrated against Muslims worshipping in the month of Ramadan, a group which did not pose a security threat.
"This atrocity is a crime against humanity because it involves women and children," said Muhammad Faisal.
