JERUSALEM (Rahnuma):Bakir Izetbegovic, the Bosniak member of the tripartite Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Wednesday visited Jerusalem and prayed at Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA.
Izetbegovic was met by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leading figure Adnan al-Husseini and the grand mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Mohammed Hussein.
During the visit, al-Husseini referred to the similarity between Palestine and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the common religious coexistence between Muslims and Christians.
The mufti of the Palestinian territories Sheikh Mohammed Hussein said that “Israel is not trusted to be responsible on the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem”.
He pointed out that these sites “are exposed to grave dangers as a result of Israel’s actions that are contrary to the most basic human rights and international conventions.”
Izetbegovic arrived in Ramallah earlier Wednesday from Jordan for a one-day state visit to Palestine.
