IOA to build third huge synagogue next to Aqsa Mosque
IOA to build third huge synagogue next to Aqsa Mosque

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage said the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) intends to build soon a huge synagogue called the Jewel of Israel in the heart of the old city of occupied Jerusalem.

In a press release on Thursday, the foundation said the IOA would build this synagogue about 200 meters away from the western side of the Aqsa Mosque at the pretext of renovating an ancient synagogue.

It noted that this synagogue would be the third of its kind in recent years after the IOA had built the synagogues of hurva and Issac tent, affirming that all the three synagogues were built on the ruins of endowed Islamic holy sites.

The foundation affirmed that the restoration of this synagogue is aimed at Judaizing the general Arab scene in Jerusalem and minimizing the greatness of the Palestinian Islamic and Christian holy monuments, especially, the Aqsa Mosque and its Dome of Rock.
