OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, the head of the higher Islamic authority and preacher of the Aqsa Mosque, has declared that two maps on landmarks of Jerusalem were finalized.

He explained in a statement on Monday that the authority’s committee of Jerusalem heritage landmarks had completed the first map on the Old City of Jerusalem and a second on suburbs of Jerusalem was also completed.

The Sheikh said that the committee was keen during its work on documenting all historical places and sites in addition to scrutinizing their original names to preserve them from forgery and alteration.

The maps would be distributed free to all educational institutions, cultural centers, and youth organizations, he said, adding that the committee would commence on a second stage that would prepare copper signs with the names of historical buildings in the holy city to be fitted on those places.
