ABU DHABI

The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia on Saturday condemned Israel’s plans to evict Palestinians from homes following a night of violence in occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades towards Palestinian youth at Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque late on Friday.

The clashes at Islam’s third holiest site and around East Jerusalem, which injured 205 Palestinians, came amid mounting anger over the planned evictions.

Marar expressed the UAE’s deep concern over the violence in occupied East Jerusalem and its strong condemnation of the storming of Al Aqsa Mosque and the displacement of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood, which resulted in the injury of a number of civilians.
