AL-KHALIL,(PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) decided to close the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil city and prevent Muslim worshipers from entering it for five days this months, the Directorate of Endowments in Al-Khalil confirmed.

The Director of Endowments in al-Khalil, Zaid Al-Jabari affirmed that the IOA told the Islamic Waqf authority in Al-Khalil city that only the Jewish settlers would be allowed during the five days to enter the Ibrahimi Mosque to celebrate the Jewish New Year and Days of Atonement and Repentance.

He pointed out that the occupation usually closes the Ibrahimi mosque for ten days per year, under the resolutions of the “Shamgar” commission, which was formed after the massacre committed by the vindictive settler ” Baruch Guldstein” against Palestinian worshipers in February 1994, which divided the mosque and prevented Muslims to enter it on Jewish holidays.

Jabari stressed that the Ibrahimi mosque and all its parts are an Islamic place, confirming that Jews have nothing to do with it.

The Ibrahimi Mosque’s closure is a part of a series of ongoing attacks against Palestinian Muslim and Christian holy places.

He also called on the international community to intervene to stop the Israeli violations and attacks against the holy Islamic sites in Palestine.
