Jerusalem24 – This Thursday morning, the Israeli police stormed the vicinity of the “Al-Taqwa” mosque, which is threatened with demolition, in the town of Al-Isawiya in occupied Jerusalem.
Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, a member of the Follow-up Committee in al-Isawiya, explained that the occupation police stormed the vicinity of al-Taqwa Mosque, which is threatened with demolition, and arrested two residents of the area.
The Al-Taqwa Mosque in Al-Isawiya is threatened with demolition. Yesterday, municipality staff gave the residents 4 days to carry out the demolition of the mosque.
A few months ago, the residents of Al-Isawiya town began cleaning up land donated by its owners, and a month ago they built the ground floor to provide services for worshippers. As soon as the construction began for the second floor “the prayer hall,” the municipality issued a demolition decision.
The municipality’s order states that the mosque, which is being constructed on an area of about 300 square meters, must be demolished under the pretext of not having a license.
The townspeople launched an electronic campaign, “Save Al-Taqwa Mosque”, to prevent the demolition of the mosque, which was built to serve the people of the area.
