The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is planning to demolish tens of Palestinian homes in the Silwan neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem, south of the Aqsa Mosque, in order to build a public park.

Sources in the IOA-controlled Jerusalem municipality said that the fanatic mayor of occupied Jerusalem Nir Barakat is expected to announce in a press conference on Tuesday the demolition of more than 40 Palestinian homes in Bustan area to establish a Toratic park in its place.

Fakhri Abu Diab, the head of the committee in defense of Silwan land, said that Barakat would reveal his plan to "develop the Bustan area" after claiming that the inhabitants approved his plan, which Fakhri said, was a lie.

He charged that Barakat was speaking about "developing" the area in order to avoid international denunciation, while in fact he wants to forcibly evacuate the people of Bustan, noting that Barakat's scheme would lead to the displacement of 1,500 citizens.

Commenting on the news along with the recently detected subsidence in occupied Jerusalem, MP Mona Mansour said that the growing intensity in the IOA diggings was a serious pointer.

She urged the Arab and Islamic masses to act in defense of the holy shrines and of occupied Jerusalem, which, she said, are for Muslims everywhere and not only Palestinians.

The head of the higher Islamic authority in occupied Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, in a similar comment, said that the issue of Palestine and Jerusalem is the concern of all Muslims.

He told a seminar organized in Gaza over IOA judaization policies that the Aqsa Mosque is part of the Islamic creed.
