Palestinians March Against Israeli Ban on Call to Prayer in Al-Ibrahimi Mosque

Hebron, MINA – Dozens of residents of the Old City of Hebron on Friday organized a march to reject the continued and systematic ban on the call to prayer in the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque by the Israeli occupation forces.

According to MINA’s correspondent in Gaza, the participants in the demonstration chanted slogans calling for preventing the Israeli occupation to control the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque, especially with the preventing of the call to prayer.

On Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister, Benny Gantz, instructed to start implementing a Judaization project aimed at changing the features of the entrance to the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron.

Gantz instructed the coordinator of the occupation government’s operations in the West Bank to issue a building permit for the project and contract with a contractor to work and complete the procedures for starting its implementation.

Since the beginning of 2021, the Israeli occupation forces banned the call to prayer in the Al-Ibrahimi Mosque 250 times. (L/MS/RE1)
