‘This is a crime and a blatant attack on Muslims' feelings,’ says acting minister of religious affairs
Palestine’s acting minister of religious affairs condemned Israel's demolition of a mosque Wednesday in the occupied West Bank.
“This is a crime and a blatant attack on Muslims' feelings,” Hussam Abu al-Rub said in a statement, according to the official Wafa news agency.
Al-Rub also called on the Arab and Islamic world to intervene to stop Israel’s attacks.
Using bulldozers, Israeli forces razed the mosque, which was under construction in the town of Umm Qusah south of Hebron, and several structures in the West Bank.
Israeli forces also bulldozed a livestock structure in Khamis al-Jahalin east of Jerusalem, said an eyewitness. Two other livestock facilities were also demolished in the Bir al-Maskoub community in east Jerusalem.
Palestinians say all of the demolished structures were located in Area C.
