Israel destroys 2 mosques and partially damages 34 mosques during aggression


GAZA, (PIC) -- The Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs in Gaza stated that the Israeli occupation has targeted during its aggression on the Gaza Strip two mosques that were totally destroyed, and six cemeteries.
The ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that 34 mosques were also partially damaged due to the indiscriminate bombing by the Israeli forces of civilian houses, agricultural lands and the government offices.
The statement also pointed out that a School of endowments in the governorate of Khan Younis has been damaged.
The Minister of Awqaf Dr. Ismail Radwan denounced targeting the mosques, the places of worship and the cemeteries by the occupation, stressing that targeting the mosques will not weaken the will and determination of the Palestinian people, but it will rather strengthen it.
"Targeting the holy sites and places of worship is a criminal act and a violation of all the laws and international norms," Dr. Radwan said.
The Minister of Awqaf expressed his surprise regarding the international silence towards the events in the Gaza Strip of killing and displacement of the children, the women, elderly people and the journalists.
He renewed his calls for the Arab and nation's scholars, the civil society organizations and the human rights institutions to visit the Gaza Strip in order to support the Palestinian people and act quickly to stop Israel from committing more crimes and follies.
