Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon Monday condemned Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and called for an end to evictions from an Arab neighbourhood in occupied East Jerusalem.

"Attacking a place of worship at any time is reprehensible, but attacking a mosque during Ramadan is utterly indefensible. It is also a violation of international law," Sturgeon said in a tweet on her Twitter account.

She added that Israel should heed calls to halt the violence immediately and to also end the illegal evictions of Palestinian residents from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem.
