New Israeli excavations under the Aqsa Mosque
 
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- A Jerusalemite center has revealed that the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) started on Sunday new excavations in the historical Umayyad Palaces near the south-western corner of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
Wadi Hilweh Information Center confirmed, in a statement issued on Sunday accompanied by photos, that the IAA workers have pitched tents in the middle of the Umayyad Palaces in preparation for new excavations in the region.
The Center noted that the Israeli occupation authorities had started judaizing the Ummayad Palaces in June last year.
The statement pointed out that IAA had installed several banners along the path within the Ummayad Palaces defining the alleged temple’s story.
