The Arab League on Tuesday called on the UN Security Council and the Middle East Quartet to shoulder their responsibilities in providing protection for the Palestinian people from the Israeli aggressions.

In a statement on the 16th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre, the pan-Arab body deplored the Israeli measures in the Palestinian territories, asserting that the practice was illegitimate.

The Ibrahimi Mosque of the Cave of Patriarchs in the West Bank city of Hebron was the site of the infamous 1994 shooting massacre carried out by the U.S.-born Jewish extremist Baruch Goldstein, who shot dead 29 Muslim worshippers in the mosque and was beaten to death later by angry Muslims.
