Hamas and Aqsa foundation slam Israeli violations against Munis graveyard

Note from occpal:

Apparently Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine is not enough.

Aside from the ongoing process of ethnic cleansing, by massacres, or by indirect violence (policies) which magnitude is  unknown to most in this world. Israel even cleanses cemeteries. And even erects fake ones to annex the land…

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Hamas Movement and the Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage strongly denounced on Tuesday the persistent Israeli violations against the Muslim graveyard of Sheikh Munis in occupied Jerusalem.

“We strongly condemn these acts and excavations that violate the sanctity of the dead and Islamic graves and antiquities dating back to the Mamluk and Ottoman eras,” Hamas stated in a separate press release.

Hamas also described the demolition of this historical Islamic graveyard as a blatant infringement on human values and international norms.

Hamas appealed to the conferees at the Islamic summit in Makkah to take active decisions to protect the Palestinian Islamic and Christian holy sites and antiquities in Jerusalem.

For its part, the Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage warned that what remained of the historical graveyard of Sheikh Munis is vulnerable to destruction.

The foundation stated that the Israeli university of Tel Aviv resumed the desecration of dozens of Muslim graves and started to remove the remains of the dead.

Tel Aviv university intends to build apartment buildings for its students in place of the Muslim graveyard, according to the Aqsa foundation.

It noted that it had submitted to the Israeli higher court a petition to issue a verdict halting the excavation and building activities in the graveyard, but the court was biased in favor of the university and turned down on Monday its objection.
