The foundation added that about 30 workmen were seen digging and loading up the trucks with soil and stones.
The workmen used hand-digging tools to avoid making noise and attracting attention to the Israeli violations against the Islamic holy sites, according to reliable eyewitnesses.
They affirmed that these diggings have been taking place for several days after midnight in order not to draw the attention of Palestinian residents in the area and the officials responsible for protecting the Islamic holy sites.
The Aqsa foundation warned that the Israeli regime is committing another crime against Al-Maghariba Gate area, which is part of the Aqsa Mosque, and called for swift Islamic and Arab moves to stop this violation against the Mosque.
