TEHRAN (Worthy News)-- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran "will use all of its capabilities" to save the "al-Aqsa Mosque" and would not allow the Mosque to remain "under the occupation of usurpers and aggressors."
"The Islamic Republic of Iran's government, as before, will use all of its capabilities to save al-Aqsa Mosque, to liberate Muslims' first qibla (the direction toward which Muslims pray) and will spare no efforts to help the oppressed people of Palestine," Rouhani said in a conference in Tehran attended by diplomats from the Muslim world.
According to the official Tasnim News Agency, the 65-year-old leader added, "We are certain that the ultimate victory belongs to Muslims."
Rouhani, considered a relative moderate among Iran's ruling clerical class, also declared that the Muslim world would not let Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque remain "under occupation of usurpers and aggressors," a reference to the Jewish state. -- Source
