OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Source in Jerusalem said that the occupation Jerusalem municipality is planning to change the features of historic neighbourhoods in the old city to build a so called biblical park and link it to other parks that have been already built.

The sources said that the occupation has already took control of the area between Bab al-Asbat (Lions’ Gate) and Bab al-Sahera (Herod’s Gate) in the old city. The area was covered with soil ready for planting trees. Preparations are also being made to build walking paths in the same site.

Palestinian organisations in Jerusalem have warned of the danger that these steps pose to Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque. They pointed out that the aim of such projects is efface any features in Jerusalem that reflect its Islamic and Arab character as part of the master plan of Judaizing the holy city.

This particular project will result in effacing parts of the historic wall of the old city, as the lower part of the wall will be covered, according to Palestinian Jerusalem organisations.

The historic wall which is under threat of being effaced was built by the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent on the ruins of the Roman wall six centuries ago. It surrounds the old city which occupies an area of 90 Hectares.
