IMEMC –  Palestinian Popular Committees slams Israeli decision to close the Ibrahimi Mosque

The Palestinian Popular (Folk) Committees slammed on Thursday an Israeli decision to close the Ibrahimi Mosque (Mosque of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank, as the Muslims started the holy month of Ramadan.The Committees called on the residents to challenge this decision and to flock to the mosque to hold prayers in it and in every mosque in the Old City of Hebron. The Committees stated that the Israeli decision is part of the ongoing violations practiced by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian residents and their holy places.Azmi Shiokhy, secretary-general of the Committees stated that Muslims should also try to reach the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem for prayers, especially during the month of Ramadan, as prayers at the Al Aqsa are part of the teachings of Islam…Shiokhy added that such decisions taken by Israel are harming the freedom of praying in every mosque in Palestine.
