RIYADH - Saudi Arabia denounced on Thursday what it called violations by Israeli forces of Jerusalem's al-Aksa mosque, one of Islam's holiest sites, which has seen days of clashes between Israeli police and stone-throwing Palestinians.
The state Saudi Press Agency quoted an official source describing the Israeli actions as an "aggression" which would "lead to grave consequences and contribute to feeding extremism and violence."
