Hamas called on the international community to abandon the state of negativity towards the ongoing crimes of Israel and to take the necessary measures to curb its aggression and punish it for its violations of international law in its capacity as an occupying power.

The Israeli forces yesterday prevented thousands of Christians from the eastern denominations from reaching the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem, to celebrate the Holt Saturday.

Eyewitnesses reported to Safa that the Israeli forces set up iron barriers, beat and pushed Christians and monks, and prevented them from reaching the church.
