IOA to close Ibrahimi Mosque before Muslims on passover days

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) decided to close the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil city and prevent Muslim worshipers from entering it on April 19 at the pretext of the Jewish passover celebrations that would be held under tight security measures.

The Islamic waqf authority in Al-Khalil city said the IOA told it that only the Jewish settlers would be allowed on that date to enter the Ibrahimi Mosque to celebrate their passover.

The Palestinians in Al-Khalil city are exposed to ongoing religious suppression by the Jewish settlers and troops and they cannot perform their prayers regularly and properly in their Ibrahimi Mosque.

The doors of the Ibrahimi Mosque are repeatedly closed by the IOF, the Adhan for prayers from the Mosque are sometimes prohibited for several days, and Palestinian worshipers are not allowed to go in without being checked and searched, not to mention the physical assaults they are exposed to on a daily basis by Jewish settlers inside and outside the Mosque.
