TUNISIA, (PIC)– Maghrebi (North African) associations announced the formation of a coalition to defend the Maghrebi rights in Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem, to retrieve their heritage which includes the Maghrebi Quarter and Bridge, and to unite their efforts to maintain close ties to Jerusalem.

The organizers of the Coalition stated, in a press release issued by the “Preparatory Committee for the first Maghreb conference in support of the Maghrebi Quarter in Jerusalem”, which was completely erased by the Israeli occupation on 11 June 1967. The destruction of this historic quarter which is adjacent to Al-Aqsa mosque targeted an Andalusian Maghrebi legacy including very precious treasures and cultural heritage.

The statement added that after forty-five years of this heinous crime and with the continued targeting of Al Aqsa Mosque, a group of Maghrebi associations in support of Palestine and in defense of the first Muslim Qibla announced the formation of a Maghrebi coalition to defend their Maghrebi rights in Al-Aqsa mosque and to demand to restore the Maghrebi stolen heritage and to work for the liberation of Al-Aqsa mosque from the brutal Zionist occupation.

The participating associations urged the Maghrebi governments to give more attention to the Maghrebi Quarter and bridge issue, to work for the support of Al-Aqsa mosque and its defenders who are stationed in the mosque to protect it, and to stop the Zionist attempts to judaize Jerusalem.

The Maghrebi associations that signed this statement confirmed that they will work to bring the Maghrebi people closer to their heritage, to unite their efforts to re-link them with Jerusalem, and to assert that they will be back again to their quarter, bridge, Jerusalem, and first Qibla.
