The Islamic Christian authority for patronizing Jerusalem and holy sites warned that the Israeli regime is relentlessly embarking on creating a false Jewish history in occupied Jerusalem especially around and beneath the Aqsa Mosque.
In a press release on Wednesday, the Islamic Christian authority said the Israeli occupation regime is persistent in Judaizing Jerusalem especially the areas of Umayyad Palaces, Al-Maghariba Gate and Silwan district.
It noted that the Israeli regime is not only working on digging tunnels and excavating historical Palestinian sites in an attempt to find any sign of its alleged temple, but also on implanting a fake Jewish history in these areas to lay claim to them.
“The occupation authorities spearheaded by its Jerusalem municipality and the antiquities authority are preparing a major scheme targeting the Aqsa Mosque compound and aimed at changing its features and replacing them with Jewish ones to pave the way for their plan to Judaize the Aqsa Mosque and establish the temple,” the Islamic Christian authority underlined.
The authority emphasized that the areas of Umayyad Palaces and Silwan are an integral part of east Jerusalem, and demanded the Israeli regime as an occupation force to respect its obligations under international law in this regard.
