Israel set fire to Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969

“Secretary General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places, Dr. Hassan Khater, said that more than four decades have passed since the crime of arson against the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the occupiers. He stated that the flames which were kindled at the end of the 1960s with the purpose of causing the foundations of Al-Aqsa to collapse, continue to burn to this very day, and have intensified and spread such that their dangers and their influence reach the entire holy city.”

Note: The fire in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969 was started by a deranged Australian Christian.
