DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Hamas strongly condemned the Israeli demolition of the Sahwa mosque in Rahet in the Negev, in 1948 occupied Palestine, at dawn Sunday and the assault on citizens of the city and the arrest of some of them.

The movement said in a statement that the step is a blatant attack on the mosque and a racist practice that is hostile to all heavenly religions and freedom of worship.

It pointed out that Israel was at the same time giving a blind eye to the extremist Jewish settlers’ attacks on the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem and other mosques in the West Bank.

Hamas urged the Palestinian people to cement ranks and to stand fast in face of the Israeli aggression. It also asked the Arab and Islamic countries along with human rights groups to protect the places of worship and deter Israeli crimes against freedoms guaranteed by international doctrines and laws.

Israeli bulldozers, escorted by hundreds of policemen, razed the mosque at an early hour on Sunday at the pretext it was built without permit.

The Hebrew radio said that Bedouin citizens of the city “rioted” against the demolition and that some of them were arrested while others were treated in local clinics after inhaling gas fired by policemen.
