Al-Quds, MINA – Israeli Occupation Authority inaugurated the construction of first underground cemetery in Al-Quds (Jerusalem), as quoted from the news site, Kibah on Friday, November 1.
The Hebrew site said the cemetery was erected on the outskirts of Al-Quds City. The inauguration of burial was attended by Mayor of Israel in the holy city, senior Jewish rabbis, and well-known figures.
The Quds Press news agency explained that the funeral construction project would include the creation of around 24 thousand graves with a depth of 50 meters underground.
Furthermore, in the first phase around 8,000 graves will be available. It is hoped that the tombs can be used by the end of this year.
Quds Press said there were excavations of tunnels with a length of 1,600 meters, width of about 16 meters, with an investment of around 300 million shekels.
It is worth mentioning, the Holy City of Al-Quds was the target of a campaign of Judaization and falsification of history by Israeli occupation institutions, especially in Al-Aqsa Mosque and Al-Buraq Wall (the west wall of the mosque) to confirm Jewish presence. (T/Sj/P2)
