One wall collapsed in al-Aqsa Mosque
Palestine-Israel, Politics, 9/24/2003
The Islamic al-Awqaf department in Jerusalem have accused the Israeli authorities of being behind the collapse of an internal wall in al-Aqsa mosque yesterday after it had prevented its engineers form maintaining it.
The collapsed wall is situated near the Islamic museum on a hill in old Jerusalem where the mosque is situated. This wall is considered new in comparison to other parts of the mosque.
The director of the Islamic Awqaf in Jerusalem Adnan al-Husseini said that the wall collapsed as a result of "the Israeli intervention in our work and preventing us from maintaining it after we stated it was in an urgent need for a rapid action to prevent its collapse."
The Israeli archeologist Eliat Mazar had visited the site following the collapse directly. She also said "it seems terrible. This collapse might cause a terrific series of collapses."
