A wave of anger was provoked in social networks by videotaping the destruction of an ancient Palestinian cemetery in occupied East Jerusalem.
It’s about the historical Bab al-Rahm cemetery, located near the Al-Aqsa mosque. The oldest burials here date back to the 7th century.
It is believed that it is in this cemetery that the last companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) – Ubad ibn as-Samit and Shadad ibn Aus are buried.
The video shows about ten employees of the Israeli management of nature and parks. With the help of sledgehammers and other improvised tools, they break ancient tombstones and grab graves.
Soon the construction of the National Park is planned. According to the media, the Israelis began to crush the cemetery before the final court decision. At the same time, the Israeli authorities are severely suppressing protests against the destruction of the cemetery.
At the moment, we know of several wounded and arrested Palestinians.
