AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Zionist and Palestinian sources said that a fire broke out on Monday morning in the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil (in the West Bank) during its storming by the Zionist usurpers while Muslims are barred from entering the Mosque for two days.

Director of Al-Khalil Endowments Zeid Al-Jabari affirmed that a small fire was caused by the usurpers’ use of candles, while they were performing Talmudic rituals in the Hebrew feast of Passover, and that it caused no damage to the Mosque.

Al-Jabari told “Quds Press” agency that he contacted the Zionist side and the liaison officer in the area told him that the fire resulted from candles and the incident did not result in any damage to the mosque, according to occupation’s claim.

He also asserted that “the Israeli media is striving for escalating the situation through overstating the event and for dragging the Palestinians toward a big confrontation.”

The Hebrew Website, “Walla,” stated that there were no injuries caused by the outbreak of the fire except of minor damage in one of the prayer halls and that the Zionist firefighters managed to control the fire and extinguished it.

Al-Jabari further mentioned that the occupation authorities closed the Ibrahimi Mosque in the face of Muslim worshipers for two days starting from Sunday and ending on Tuesday.

According to Al-Jabari, the occupation authorities is going to close the Ibrahimi Mosque in full -including Al-Khalil Endowments section – in order to provide full freedom for the Zionist usurpers to celebrate what the Jewish Passover.

The Ibrahimi Mosque has been divided according to the so-called Shamgar commission report, which was formed following the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre and which was committed by the settler, “Baruch Goldstein” in 1994. More than 60 percent of the mosque becomes under the control of Israeli occupation all year round.
