Saudi Arabia has called for a meeting of foreign ministers of the world's largest body of Muslim countries to take place Sunday.
The meeting would focus on Israeli acts of violence against Palestinians and the use of force by Israeli police against demonstrators at Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque, reports Alarabia News.
The Kingdom will host the virtual summit, which will bring together ministers from the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to "discuss Israeli aggression in Palestinian territory," especially acts of violence near Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the body.
Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, and a number of other Muslim-majority countries are members of the OIC, which is headquartered in Saudi Arabia.
For Muslims all over the world, the sanctity of the al-Aqsa mosque, one of Islam's holiest places, is an important and emotional problem.
The OIC was founded 51 years ago in the aftermath of a Jewish terrorist arson attack on Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque.
The hilltop on which the mosque is built is also holy to Jews, who refer to it as the Temple Mount because it is where the biblical temples once stood.
Some Jews and evangelical Christians support the construction of a new Jewish temple on the site, which Muslims oppose because they believe the mosque would be partitioned or demolished.
