Palestine: Jerusalemites have become refugees in their city & 60 Israelis storm the Aqsa mosque

Jerusalemite Foundation: Jerusalemites have become refugees in their city

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Jerusalemite Foundation condemned the Israeli escalated demolition campaign threatening the Jerusalemites’ right to housing.

The Jerusalem Foundation for Development said in a press statement that the Jerusalemites have become refugees in their own city due to the demolition process carried out by the Israeli municipality with the aim of expelling the city’s native residents and implement demographic changes in the area.

The Israeli right-wing parties’ statements reflect the Israeli fierce campaign against Jerusalem and its people, where many Israeli leaders claimed that Jerusalem is the Jewish eternal capital and the Palestinian population rate should not exceed 3 per cent in the occupied city, the foundation added.

The foundation pointed out to the escalated demolition campaign against Jerusalemites’ houses under the pretext of building without permits, forcing several Jerusalemites to build outside the occupied city of Jerusalem.

Since 1967, about 1322 houses were demolished in addition to 20 thousand demolition orders were issued in an attempt to create a new demographic, geographic and political reality in the occupied Jerusalem.


60 Jewish settlers storm the Aqsa mosque

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– About 60 Jewish settlers stormed the Aqsa mosque on Tuesday morning in groups and as individuals under heavy Israeli military escort and toured the holy site in the company of rabbis.

Hundreds of worshipers, school students, and students learning the holy Quran were present at the time and chanted Allahu Akbar (God is Great) in rejection of those visits and tours.

Tension is prevailing in the Old City of Jerusalem and in the vicinity of the Aqsa mosque after Jewish fanatic organizations declared intention to assemble in front of the Israeli premier’s office at 5:00 pm today then head from there to the Aqsa mosque to demand full sovereignty over the holy site and the right of Jews to offer Talmudic rituals inside it.

The Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage warned of the consequences of that march and held the Israeli occupation authority fully responsible in the event it actually took place.

AFEH called on the Arab and Islamic organizations and peoples to assume their responsibility toward Jerusalem and the Aqsa, and urged for immediate action to save the Aqsa from plots that are being ceaselessly hatched against it.
