Eghbariye: IOA destruction of two mosques in Ramadan flagrant crime
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, — Israel’s so-called civil administration of the West Bank has issued orders for the destruction of two newly built mosques in the West Bank at the pretext of lack of construction permits.
Hebrew daily Haaretz said on Monday that the first mosque was near Burin village and the other near Jalazoun village.
Arab member of the Israeli parliament Dr. Afou Eghbariye described the order as “flagrant crime” especially when it falls in the holy Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.
He said that the step would provoke the feelings of Muslims, noting that the Israeli occupation authority had condoned the demolition of other Arab homes in the Negev and West Bank without any consideration to the religious feelings of the Palestinian citizens in this holy month.
