Mufti of Jerusalem on PA TV: The Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb are heritage sites of the Palestinian people alone

PA TV live broadcast from gathering to honor released prisoners from Jerusalem district, Shuafat refugee camp.
Muhammad Hussein, Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine:
"Not so long ago the occupation (i.e., Israel) claimed that the Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs) and the Bilal Ibn Rabbah Mosque (Rachel's Tomb) are Jewish antiquities, and that goes against the truth and history. Today [now that Palestine has been accepted into UNESCO] we are able to tell the UN, via UNESCO, that these places are cultural and heritage sites of the Palestinian people."
