Muscat: Paying homage to one of the Arab and Islamic worlds’ most sacred cities, Oman Post has launched a new stamp, Al Quds Capital of Palestine.
Part of a collaboration with the Arab Permanent Postal Commission, established by the Arab League in 1954, the stamp represents the Arab world’s support for the Palestinian cause. Available now, the unique stamp depicts the Dome of the Rock or Qubbat Al-Sakhrah, one of Islam’s most significant holy sites located in the Temple Mount or the Haram esh-Sharif, a walled compound
within the Old City of Jerusalem. In addition, the stamp features the Palestinian flag and two white doves, representing peace.
“Oman has always been a supporter of the Palestinian cause, and this new stamp not only very beautifully depicts the Dome of the Rock, but also delivers a united message to the entire
world,” said Abdulmalik Al Balushi, CEO of Oman Post. “We hope that philatelists and people who are interested in the historical and cultural significance of Al Quds, will enjoy the stamp and
be reminded of our wish for a better future for the Palestinian people and peace around the world.”
