The office of the Supreme Religious Authority issued today, Wednesday 29th of the holy month of Ramadhan 1442 AH corresponding to May 12, 2021, a statement about the current confrontations in the occupied territory.
The following is the statement published on the official website of the Supreme Religious Authority; his eminence Sayed al-Sistani:
In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate,
The [Shia] Religious Authority [The Marja’iyah] affirms, once again, its categorical support to the proud Palestinian people in their valiant resistance against the occupiers who seek to usurp more of their lands and displace them [The Palestinians] from other parts of Quds [Jerusalem]. And [The Marja'iyah] calls on all free peoples to aid and support them [The Palestinians] in reclaiming their stolen rights.
The violent confrontations taking place in the squares of al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of the occupied territories in these days, undoubtedly demonstrate the resilience of the Palestinians in the face of the brutal occupation and its continuous aggressions and [The Palestinians] refusal to abandon their usurped lands, no matter the sacrifices."
