Ministry of Foreign affairs and expatriate: warns of the dangers of the archaeological excavations and their catastrophic consequences in the town of Silwan
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates condemns in the strongest terms the continuation of the excavations carried out by the occupation authorities and their various arms, including settlement associations, under the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the old town and the town of Silwan, and is known as the "Tunnel network" and considers it An integral part of the escalating judaization of occupied East Jerusalem and its environs, and an attempt to alter the historical and legal reality in Jerusalem and its sanctities, in particular the ongoing occupation of the southern walls of the al-Aqsa mosque from its Palestinian residents and forcing them to leave by various means The methods, whether in relation to tunnels or underground and above, to flood the perimeter of the Al-Aqsa Mosque with the settlers in order to serve the Talmudic narratives in favour of the occupation. Heavy rains over the past two days have revealed the depth of what is happening under the town of Silwan, where many massive collapses and cracks took place at the stadium of Silwan, in the homes of citizens and in the streets.
The ministry holds the Israeli Government fully and directly responsible for these excavations and their consequences and serious repercussions on the lives of Palestinian citizens, and calls for urgent international action to stop those excavations and provide protection to our people. The Ministry considers that the American bias and international silence encourage the occupation authorities to carry out their projects of ventilation and precipitation, and here the Ministry wonders: is the international community waiting for the disaster of collapsing houses over the heads of its inhabitants of children, women and elders to show greater seriousness in the movement to curb The occupation and his crimes?! This question, we put it in the drawing of the UN Security Council.
