Bulk295CAIRO (PNIC):-Egypt's al-Azhar Mosque on Tuesday evening announced that it will send an urgent aid convoy to the Gaza Strip after 62 Palestinians were killed and over 3,000 injured in an Israeli massacre near Gaza's eastern border.

The convoy includes about 50 tons of food and humanitarian aid in addition to two vehicles loaded with medical supplies especially those needed for surgeries and emergency cases.

Al-Azhar al-Sharif issued a statement Monday condemning the heinous crimes committed by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people in Gaza.

Al-Azhar said in its statement that the Israeli forces deliberately targeted unarmed demonstrators while they were marching peacefully on the 70th anniversary of the Nakba killing dozens and injuring hundreds.

Al-Azhar Observer for Combating Terrorism condemned the US embassy transfer to Occupied Jerusalem, saying that what Washington did is an aggression on the rights of the Palestinian people.

Al-Azhar Observer said that relocating the US embassy is a kind of political extremism and a violation of international conventions that undermines any possible peace process in the region and paves the way for more violence and instability.

At least 62 Palestinians were killed and about 3,188 injured in Gaza on Monday after the Israeli occupation forces targeted the civilians protesting in the eastern border areas with live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and teargas canisters.

Palestinians marched in Gaza on Monday mainly in protest at the US embassy transfer to Jerusalem in accordance with a decision issued by the US president Donald Trump on 6th December 2017.

Trump's decision has stirred widespread Palestinian and international resentment. The Palestinian Authority, for example, decided to freeze its political relations with the US administration, while the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution rejecting attempts to alter the legal status of Occupied Jerusalem.
