Gaza12SepOCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Israeli Forces on Monday demolished part of a Muslim cemetery for burial of martyrs, near the historic wall of occupied Jerusalem in the vicinity of al-Asbat gate.

The head of the committee for the preservation of Islamic cemeteries in Jerusalem, Mustafa Abu Zahra said, in a press statement, that Israeli bulldozers broke into the cemetery and knocked down its wall. Then, they started leveling works in the graveyard which includes remains of 400 martyrs who fell down in the battle of Jerusalem in 1967, he added.

Israeli authorities have been working for years on the establishment of public parks in the vicinity of Jerusalem's historic wall with the aim of obliterating the Arab and Islamic landmarks of Jerusalem and Judaizing the holy city.
