AFEH: IOA stealing historical Islamic stones
GAZA , —- The Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage (AFEH) has charged the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) with taking away historical Islamic stones in trucks to unknown destinations.
The AFEH in a statement on Tuesday said that the IOA was launching large-scale excavations in the Umayyad Palaces area south of the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
It added that the diggings, which extend tens of meters, were posing threats to the Aqsa and the holy city.
The Foundation charged the IOA with judaizing the vicinity of the Aqsa and with preparing for the establishment of its “mythical” temple in place of the Aqsa.
AFEH urged the Arab and Islamic countries to immediately act to save Jerusalem and the Aqsa in face of such systematic piracy, and to stand up to the IOA schemes against the holy site and city.
