IOF turn Nabi Samuel Mosque into military post
IOF turn Nabi Samuel Mosque into military post

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) turned the Mosque of Nabi Samuel village, north of Jerusalem, into a military post and occupied its roof.

In a press release on Friday, the foundation added that the IOF made it hard for the Palestinian citizens to enter their village after they turned it into a military zone, and used the roof of Nabi Samuel Mosque as an observation post.

The foundation also affirmed that the Israeli antiquities authority stole a historical copestone from the interior entrance of the Mosque at the pretext of its intention to refurbish it.

It said that similar incidents in which wall stones had been stolen by the Israeli occupation authority proved that a gradual theft of the historical Islamic relics is intentionally carried out for Judaization purposes.

The Aqsa foundation noted that the Israeli occupation regime had already took over Nabi Samuel Mosque, left only a small hall for Muslims' prayers and turned the tomb of Prophet Samuel into a Jewish shrine.

The foundation appealed to all concerned international organizations, especially the UNESCO, to move to protect the Palestinian historical sites in Nabi Samuel village and put an end to Israel's violations.
