Demolishing four graves in Al-Rahmeh Gate Cemetery
July 19, 2016

The employees of the so-called “Nature and Parks Authority” demolished on Tuesday four graves in Al-Rahmeh Gate Cemetery adjacent to Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The member of Welfare Committee of Islamic cemeteries in Jerusalem, Hamzeh Hijazi, explained that crews from the Nature and Parks Authority raided Al-Rahmeh Gate Cemetery on Tuesday with hand-demolition tools and surprisingly demolished four graves.

The Nature and Parks Authority is seeking to confiscate parts of Al-Rahmeh Gate Cemetery in favor of “National Parks”.
