Syria condemned what it termed Israel's "desecration of Arab and Islamic sanctities" in Jerusalem on Friday, adding its voice to those opposing indirect negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel.

"The desecration ... comes at a time when the majority of the Arab League Council's memebers adopted the indirect Palestinian-Israeli negotiations," read a statement released by the Syrian Foreign Ministry. It further noted that the clashes serve as "extra evidence on Israel's non-seriousness about peace ... and a proof of the Israeli anti-peace policy that aims at liquidating the Palestinian cause."

Echoing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's earlier statement, Damascus called Friday's incident a "blatant provocation to the feeling of hundreds of millions of Muslims."
