The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the State of Palestine warned of the dangers resulting from excavations that are being carried out by the Israeli occupation authorities and their crews, under the “Al-Aqsa Mosque” including under the old city of occupied Jerusalem, especially as extensive excavation work is carried out by the occupation authorities in that area without revealing its nature.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed in a statement, that the catastrophic results of these excavations appear during the winter months, when rain water leaks through large cracks in the homes and shops of citizens as a results of the excavations, as was seen clearly yesterday in the Bab Al-Silsilah neighborhood in the old town of occupied Jerusalem.
