UKLFI Charitable Trust hosted a webinar on The Alleged Attack on Al Aqsa, with Adv. Yifa Segal, International Director of UKLFI and Natasha Hausdorff on Sunday 8th May .
Is Al Aqsa really being threatened? Are any legal rights being violated? Who holds the legal responsibility and what is it exactly? The recent events on the Temple Mount have, once again, managed to attract vast international attention. However, despite its significance, a true, in-depth, legal and factual debate has not been conducted.
Yifa Segal, UKLFI’s International Director and Natasha Hausdorff, UKLFI Charitable Trust’s Legal Director discussed these issues and answered questions from the audience.
