Israeli Occupation Authorities on Tuesday have announced that they will close the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron’s old city for the Muslim worshipers, for six days during September, under the pretext of Jewish occasions.
Head of the mosque, Munther Abul-Feelat in a press release said that Israeli authorities decided to close down the mosque for 14, 15, 17, 23, 29 and 30 September, for Jewish celebrations, where only settlers will be allowed to enter it.
Abul-Feelat added that IOF prevented calling the Adaan (call for prayers) for 51 times during August.
The mosque is regularly closed down by Israeli forces under the same pretext, but Jewish settlers are given full privilege to break into the mosque whenever desired.
IOF set checkpoints on the entrances of the mosque and worshipers are fully inspected on the gates.
