IOA orders demolition of Maghareba bridge next September

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has ordered the demolition of the bridge leading to the Maghareba gate in the Aqsa Mosque in September to benefit from international preoccupation with the UN vote on recognizing a Palestinian state.

Hebrew daily Ha’aretz said on Wednesday that the Israeli police recommendation of that date was meant to coincide with the UN vote to ensure that Arab reaction would be minimal.

It said that the Israeli police force was still fearing confrontations in occupied Jerusalem as a result of the demolition process.

The Maghareba gate is controlled by the IOA and is the only entrance gate for the Jews to the holy Aqsa Mosque.
