The Palestinian Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs said on Sunday that it had documented 23 Israeli incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, and the call to prayer was banned 51 times in the Ibrahimi Mosque in the city of Hebron, in the southern West Bank, last August.
The ministry added in a monthly report documenting the occupation’s violations against the sanctities, a copy of which was delivered to Anatolia, that the occupation and settlers “stormed and desecrated Al-Aqsa Mosque more than 23 incursions and desecration.”
Settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque daily, in two shifts: morning and afternoon, with the exception of Friday and Saturday.
In addition, the Waqf said that the occupation “prevented the call to prayer in the Ibrahimi Mosque for 51 times.”
Since 1994, Israel has divided the mosque by 63 percent for Jews, and 37 percent for Muslims, following a massacre committed by a settler that killed 29 worshipers.
The “call to prayer” room for Muslims is located in the Jewish part of the mosque, and its lifting requires soldiers from the occupation army to accompany the muezzin at the time of the call to prayer.
The endowments indicated that the occupation had begun “the implementation of a Judaization project that includes the construction of corridors, squares and an elevator to facilitate settlers’ storming of the Ibrahimi Mosque.”
Among the violations documented by the report, the occupation army “stopped the construction of a mosque under construction in the Qornet Ad-Damas area in Bethlehem Governorate (south), and attacked the Nabi Samuel Mosque (in Jerusalem), by paving the side yard and preventing entry to the mosque except for those who hold ID cards. the village”.
