Israeli occupation government builds a bridge for military vehicles, Jewish synagogues to be established at al-Aqsa Mosque

Israeli Occupation Authority (IOA) has continued its Judaization scheme to turn Mughrabi  Gate leading to al-Aqsa Mosque into a bridge for military vehciels.

The IOA is also planning to build a series of Jewish synagogues after demolishing large parts of the Mosque, Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage revealed in a statement on Tuesday.

Aqsa Foundation said that the bridge to be established in the Mughrabi Gate aims to enable army vehicles and equipment along with hundreds of soldiers to break into al-Aqsa Mosque at will.

The bridge came as part of an Israeli scheme to Judaize the Mughrabi hill as a whole, which is funded by the Israeli government.

Aqsa Foundation said that Israeli engineering and technical crews began Tuesday morning to erect large wooden planks in the street leading to the Mughrabi Gate.

The bridge is to be established at the expense of 1.6 acres of the Mughrabi neighborhood that was demolished in 1967.

In 2000, the IOA started preventing Palestinian worshipers' entry to al-Aqsa Mosque via Mughrabi Gate.

Aqsa Foundation described the construction of the bridge as a dangerous precedent and a prelude to the destruction of al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing the need for providing an Arab-Islamic protection for the Islamic holy sites.
