Mosque under construction demolished in Arab al-Ramadin

Jerusalem24 – The Israeli occupation forces demolished today Tuesday a mosque under construction in the Arab Al-Ramadin area, located behind the apartheid wall near the city of Qalqilya in the northern West Bank, and close to the “green line” between Israel and the West Bank.

Local sources said that the mosque was about 450 square meters and was the first to be built in the area.

The Israeli occupation authorities say that the demolishing order was issued because the mosque is in Area C, stop-construction order that was issued on 1 November 2021 had not been adhered to.

The mosque was being built on a piece of land donated by the citizens, with funds donated by the people of the area and with coordination with a committee formed by the ministry of Islamic endowments.

The Arab Al-Ramadin community is located to the southeast of Qalqilya, in close proximity to the Green Line as well as the apartheid wall.
