OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, -- Palestinian figures addressing a press conference on Silwan town, in occupied Jerusalem, has warned that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) aims at judaizing the entire town and the vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque.

The conference held under the title "And Silwan Abides" was organized by the Bustan suburb-Silwan committee, the Quds institution for development, and the Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage at the sit-in tent in Bustan neighborhood.

Speakers at the conference declared absolute rejection of the IOA schemes and practices, affirming that the inhabitants of Bustan and Silwan would remain steadfast in their homes.

A documentary was screened at the start of the conference detailing the history of Silwan, saying it was founded 6,000 years ago and has a current population of 50,000.

Sheikh Raed Salah, the head of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, said in the film that the town was targeted by IOA confiscation of land, diggings, and settlement outposts.

Salah's deputy Sheikh Kamal Al-Khatib told the conference that Silwan is the fence protecting Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque. He added that Silwan will remain a thorn in the way of those who want to confiscate its land.

Mumen Al-Abasy said in a speech on behalf of the national forces in Jerusalem that national unity was a must to enhance the steadfastness of the Jerusalemites.

Meanwhile, the IOA banned the entry of a shipment of Turkish glass into the Aqsa Mosque for maintenance purposes, Hebrew press reported.

It noted that the diplomats in the Turkish embassy expressed outrage at the IOA step.
