IOA plans new demolition campaign of Islamic landmarks in OJ


The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is planning a fresh wave of demolitions in occupied Jerusalem of Islamic landmarks, the Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage (AFEH) said on Monday.

It said in a statement that the IOA is planning a major reshuffle to the facades of ancient buildings in Wad Street to the east of occupied Jerusalem.

AFEH said that the so-called maintenance works would extend along the road from Bab Al-Amud gate to several other gates on the western flank of the Aqsa mosque.

The foundation warned that the IOA plans to dig deep into the Wad Street at the pretext of improving infrastructure, adding that the digging would cause vast damage to Arab and Islamic landmarks other than stealing ancient stones that would be later used for forging history and fabricating Hebrew relics.

It said that the scheme is being implemented by a group of companies interested in Judaizing the holy city in cooperation with the Israeli antiquities authority and the municipality.
