GAZA, (PIC)-- The Quds committee in the PA caretaker government"s ministry of Awkaf and religious affairs has charged that the Israeli systematic settlement policy in occupied Jerusalem was American backed.

 

The committee in a statement on Friday said that the occupied municipality in Jerusalem announced a new housing project last march, and noted that the occupation government endorsed the construction of 400 of those housing units in Neve Yaacov settlement suburb in occupied eastern Jerusalem.

 

It warned of the dangers threatening the identity and the Islamic and Christian landmarks of Jerusalem, and described the settlement plan as a "grave danger on Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque".

 

The committee said that the housing plan falls in line with the Israeli systematic settlement policy that aims at eliminating all Palestinian landmarks in the holy city.

 

The Israeli occupation authority"s racist measures are fully backed by the USA with the aim of imposing an Israeli demographic majority on the occupied city, the committee said.

 

It appealed to the Arab and Islamic masses along with international legal organizations to immediately act to save the holy city and the Aqsa Mosque and to protect the holy shrines. It warned that Israel would not be content with those "criminal measures".
