Grand Mufti of Al-Quds Blames UNESCO for Destruction of Al-Aqsa Mosque
BFnews: "As regards the drilling and settlement building operations which are continued day and night in the city of Quds, we observe a high level of negligence on the part of UNESCO," Hussein told FNA on Wednesday.

"What we often see is only some embarrassing positions (of the UNESCO) with regard to these plans which are against the international rules and conventions," he added.

Hussein called on UNESCO to act upon its responsibilities and stop neglecting the measures adopted by the Zionist occupiers and settlers of Quds.

In light of the Arab and Muslim world's passive stance, the Zionist regime takes any action it wants very freely and breaks sanctuaries and Judaizes the Quds city without being questioned by the international community.

Palestinian officials had also earlier warned that the Israeli Quds municipality continued to Judaize East Quds (Jerusalem) through the renaming of Arab street names and monuments in the city.

As part of what the municipality calls "infrastructure restoration and area development", authorities fenced off areas around the city's historic Damascus Gate to do name and landscape changes as part of the Judaizing of the city.
