Kabul (IP) - A spokesman for the Kabul Municipality said that it was important to install the symbol of Al-Quds in Kabul.

Iran Press/Asia: One week after the martyrdom of Al Jazeera's Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, the Kabul Municipality installed the symbol of Al-Quds in the most important geographical and communication place in Kabul.

In an interview with Iran Press, Nematullah Barakzai, a spokesman for the Kabul Municipality, said the main symbols of the Afghan capital are rooted in Islamic tradition, culture, and religion.

The spokesman of Kabul Municipality emphasized that there is no doubt that Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque have cultural and Islamic ties with Afghanistan and because it is the first qibla of Muslims, it is important for everyone.

"The most important cultural and traditional symbols will be installed in the best places of Kabul," said Barakzai.

In an interview with Iran Press, an Afghan citizen living in Kabul stated that Al-Aqsa Mosque is our ideal and the first qibla of Muslims occupied by the Israeli regime.

The Afghan citizen said that the construction and installation of the symbol of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Kabul is commendable and the symbol is requested to be installed in all cities of Afghanistan and Islamic countries, such as the symbol of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Quds.

The Kabul citizen also noted: "We are against Israel and are ready to wage jihad to help the Palestinian people, and we demand that the people in all Islamic countries wage jihad against Israel."
