ACTNews, JERUSALEM – After the attack by Israeli forces, there are still many Palestinians who have not returned to their homes for the last few days to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem. For them, their presence at Al-Aqsa is very important to ensure that Muslims are always there to protect, defend, and respect the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
To support the struggle of the guardians of Al-Aqsa, the Indonesian community through Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) distributed meals for suhoor and iftar. At least 600 residents received meals that were distributed on Sunday (4/17/2022).
Said Mukaffiy from the Global Humanity Network - ACT team explained that the meals comprised rice, grilled chicken, three dates, apple, bread, yogurt, and mineral water.
"Insha Allah, this assistance can provide peace and mental support for the guardians of Al-Aqsa. The Iftar and suhoor packages will also continue to be distributed in the next few days with your support," reported Said, Monday (4/18/2022).
This assistance was not the first to be distributed. In the first three days of Ramadan this year, ACT has distributed more than a thousand iftar packages to residents living around the Al-Aqsa mosque as a form of support for the Palestinians who have been dealing with attacks from Israeli forces.
The recent escalation at the Al-Aqsa mosque has left more than 170 Palestinians injured and dozens arrested. The attacks aim to prevent Palestinian Muslims from entering the mosque in light of the Passover holiday.
