Excavations underneath Hosh Assaily in the old city of Jerusalem
October 3, 2013

Jamal Assaily said that continuous excavation works are being done underneath his house which is located near Al-Silsileh gate which is one of Al-Aqsa Mosque gates. Assaily explained that the works began at 4 a.m. and are still going on, and it is obvious that the works are being done using heavy equipment noting that “Ateret Cohanim” settlement organization is carrying out those works as they are digging tunnels underneath the old city of Jerusalem. He pointed out that there were two collapses in Hosh Assaily last year and the year before because of the excavations and tunnels.
