TEHRAN (IQNA) – Chairman of Jerusalem Al-Quds’ Committee in the Palestinian Legislative Council, MP Ahmed Abu Halabiyeh, condemned Israel’s expropriation of part of the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil (Hebron).

 

“Stripping [Palestinian Authority]’s municipality of Hebron from its supervision over Al-Ibrahimi Mosque and handing it over to the Settlement Planning Council is a new crime of judaisation,” the MP said in a statement, Quds Press reported.

He stated that this measure aims to expropriate the lands of the mosque to build new Jewish settlement projects.

The Palestinian MP considered this Israeli “violation” a “clear challenge for Muslims’ feelings”, noting that this is a “violation of the Muslims’ right to ownership of Al-Ibrahim and the other endowments around it.”

To undermine the Israeli plot, he called on Palestinians to increase their visits to the mosque and the time they spend there.

Last week, an Israeli court threw out a petition filed by Hebron Municipality requesting it cancel previous permission it had granted for the Settlement Planning Council to install an elevator inside Ibrahimi Mosque.
