Israel to Close Ibrahimi Mosque in Laylat al-Qadr

Ibrahimi Mosque


Israeli authorities decided to close the Ibrahimi Mosque in the city of Hebron in Laylat al-Qadr or "the Night of Destiny" to allow Jewish settlers to celebrate inside the mosque on the first day in the Jewish month of Ayloul (August).

The Israeli authorities informed Al-Awqaf department in the West Bank Monday evening, that the mosque will be closed on Monday 5/8/2013, which coincide with the commemoration of the Laylat al-Qadr that marks the night when the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad in the holy month of Ramadan.

It's worth mentioning that Israel closes the mosque for almost 10 times a year in an attempt to violate the Muslim religious rights in their holy sites in Palestine.
