Lebanese resistance group Hezbollah has strongly condemned the desecration of the Muslims holy book Quran by Israeli forces at al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In a Monday statement, Hezbollah called on all Muslim nations to take a harsh stance against the insulting move that drew widespread condemnation.
The group asked Muslim countries not to remain silent in the face of such sacrilegious acts. The Arab League also censured the desecration of Qur'an by Israeli forces.
The condemnations came after Israeli forces stormed a session of Qur'an recitation in al-Aqsa Mosque in the West Bank where a Zionist soldier stepped on a copy of the holy book.
This is not the first time that Israelis desecrate Muslim sanctities. Israeli forces and settlers have on numerous occasions attacked mosques and religious sites in the occupied territories.
