Stealing Palestinian heritage from under their feet

A street collapse near the entrance of the Bab Khan Az-Zeit market in the Old City of Jerusalem occurred on Sunday, as a result of Israeli excavations in the area, witnesses reported.’

‘… these illegal underground Israeli excavations – done underneath civilian populated areas – not only threaten the very foundation of Islam’s third holiest shrine, but it also poses a serious threat to the residents of the neighborhoods under which these non-stop network of “archeological explorations” are taking place, the latest victim of these excavations was the Wad Hilwa Street, in Silwan which collapsed last week causing a 10 meter deep ditch near which a child fell and was consequently wounded.’
