The High Presidential Commission for Church Affairs in Palestine strongly condemned Tuesday the raising of Israeli flag over the eastern entrance to the Holy Sepulchre Church.

The commission considered the act as a flagrant violation that came as part of Israel’s daily breaches of the Palestinian sovereignty in occupied Jerusalem

Raising the Israeli flag on Holy Sepulchre Church is a flagrant violation of the 2012 resolution which recognized Palestine as a non-member observer state in the United Nations, the commission said. 

The commission stressed the importance of maintaining the status quo in occupied Jerusalem which preserves freedom of worship for all religions, and prevents the raising of any flag over holy places.

It also called for standing firmly against any Israeli attempt to impose control over the Palestinian holy places.

Earlier on Monday, Israeli extremist groups raised the Israeli flag over the Holy Sepulchre Church.
