OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, -- The Israeli antiquities authority has embarked lately on carrying out wide excavations near Sultan Suleiman pool, west of the old city of occupied Jerusalem, in the area known presently as Jouret Al-Innab.

The excavations revealed remains of an Arabian bridge built by Sultan Mohamed Bin Qalawun in the Mamluk era as was clear from an inscription engraved on the bridge which disappeared at the beginning of the last century. The diggings also uncovered water channels which were used to supply the old city and the Aqsa Mosque with water from the pool.

The Israeli antiquities authority and director of the excavations Yehiel Zelinger as usual alleged on Wednesday that this Arabian bridge was built on Jewish ruins used to be present in the era of the second temple and added that the channels were built in the era of Hasmoneans to supply the second temple with water.

Israel always claims, after its excavations unveil Islamic and Arabian antiquities, that these discoveries were built on Jewish holy sites dating back to the eras of the first and second temple in an attempt to convince the world that the Islamic monuments in Jerusalem were established on buried Jewish remains, although it failed to prove anything of its allegations.
