Israeli police harass volunteers cleaning Muslim cemetery in Al-Quds

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Israeli police harassed on Wednesday volunteers who were cleaning a Muslim cemetery located just outside Al-Quds’ Old City wall, according to witnesses.

They said police approached the volunteers from East Jerusalem Al-Quds, who have been working on removing weed and dirt from the cemetery for the past week, and took down their names as a prelude to summoning them for questioning.

Palestinians fear Israel wants to take over the historic cemetery, known as Bab al-Rahmeh located at the foot of the closed gate with the same name, known as well as the Golden Gate, which is one of the gates to the Muslim Al-Haram al-Sharif or Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Israel is attempting to take over part of the cemetery and has prevented Palestinians from burying their dead there. It also wants to take over Bab al-Rahmeh area inside the mosque compound, which caused a stir among Muslim officials in Al-Quds.

The Israeli measures led at one point to confrontations with the Palestinians, who refused to allow the Israeli authorities to desecrate their cemetery.
