Israeli settlers break into Solomon‘s Pools site near Bethlehem


BETHLEHEM, Thursday, May 09, 2019 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers today raided Solomon‘s Pools archeological site, to the south of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem, and held religious rituals there, Palestinian security sources said.

Israeli soldiers closed off the area as the settlers raided the three pools where they performed Jewish rituals.

Jewish settlers have recently intensified their raids of Solomon‘s Pools, a famous cultural site visited by many tourists around the world, in what Palestinians fear is a prelude to taking it over.

Settlers have actually intensified raids of Palestinian archeological sites around the West Bank, located mainly inside Palestinian towns and villages, such as yesterday’s raid of the Masoudia area in Sebastia in the north of the West Bank, causing concern of the settler’s future intentions from being there under various pretexts.
