AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) decided to close the Ibrahimi Mosque to Muslims on the 27th of Ramadan, which corresponds to The Night of Qadr ‎to make the way for Jewish settlers to celebrate one of their festivals.‎

Director General of Endowments in al-Khalil, Tayseer Abu Sneineh, confirmed that the ‎occupation authorities informed the Endowments department of its decision to close Ibrahimi Mosque to Muslim ‎worshipers, and of their intention to clear its corridors and yards for the settlers on ‎Monday, corresponding to August 5th, under the pretext of celebrating the Jewish festival.

It is noteworthy that Israeli occupation used to close Ibrahimi Mosque ‎and the surrounding streets ten days throughout the year under the pretext of Jewish ‎holidays. On these days, Muslims are banned from entering it in favor of ‎the Jewish settlers.‎

The Night of Qadr (Lailat ul Qadr) is a special night that occurs every year in Ramadan ‎and represents a golden opportunity for Muslims to gain blessings and forgiveness from ‎Allah.
