The Indonesian Embassy in Amman has again distributed donations in the form of packages breaking the fast for around 500 Palestinians in the Al Aqsa Mosque complex, Jerusalem, Sunday (12/5).
"The intended donation is a contribution from the Indonesian people as a form of concern for our brothers and sisters in Palestine," said the Indonesian Ambassador to Jordan and Palestine, Andy Rachmianto.
The iftar Ramadhan 1440H activity was held in collaboration with the Indonesian Embassy in Amman with volunteers from Indonesia who settled in Jerusalem as the holy city of three religions.
Andy Rachmianto stated that the concern of the Indonesian people to Palestine will never recede.
"This iftar activity is also proof that Indonesia is always with the Palestinians in any situation," he said.
Even though the holy city of Jerusalem is still occupied by Israel, this situation does not disturb the atmosphere of Palestinian Muslims to practice fasting, including breaking the fast and praying.
"Palestinian Muslims can still practice fasting, including iftar and prayer, even under the shadow of Israeli intimidation," Andy said.
Palestinian Muslims who fasted in an orderly manner cross-legged enjoying the breaking fast menu in the form of chicken rice and eggs cooked in the public kitchen. White water and some dates complete the iftar dish which takes place on the courtyard of the Al Aqsa Mosque as one of the three sacred mosques that must be visited by Muslims worldwide.
