Hundreds perform Friday prayer in threatened Wadi al-Hummus area in Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Friday, June 21, 2019 (WAFA) – Hundreds of Palestinians performed Friday prayer outdoors today in Abu al-Hummus area, in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher, in protest of Israel‘s decision to demolish dozens of homes in the area under the pretext of their proximity to the Israeli segregation barrier.

Sheik Ekrema Sabri, the former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine, led the Friday prayer and sermon, during which he condemned the planned Israeli move.

Yesterday, Israeli occupation authorities gave Palestinian residents in Wadi al-Hums until the 18th of the upcoming month of July to implement an Israeli Supreme Court’s order of demolishing 100 residential apartments, or they would face the large demolition costs and fines charged by the occupation’s municipality.
