IOA to demolish mosque near Bethlehem
The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) issued a demolition notice on Tuesday against a mosque in eastern Bethlehem.
The representative of the Anti-settlement and Wall Committee, Hasan Brijieh, said that the Israeli civil administration issued the demolition notice against a mosque frequented by Palestinian worshipers over the past three years ago to the east of Bethlehem city claiming that it was built without getting the required permits.
Brijieh told the Quds Press news agency that the mosque was built on a land that is owned by the Islamic endowments over an area of 500 square meters.
The Palestinian activist said that the demolition of this mosque falls in line with a series of measures practiced by an extremist government targeting everything that is Palestinian.
