PLO Executive Committee member: Israel built a "gigantic synagogue" under Al-Aqsa Mosque's foundation

“Ahmed Qurei, ‘Abu Alaa’, PLO Executive Committee member and Head of the Department for Jerusalem Affairs… said that Jerusalem is in a very difficult situation, which manifests itself in [the fact] that the occupation government has intensified its racist Judaization measures against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and increased the settlers’ invasions of its plazas, as well as the discovery and instruction tours they conduct inside it, during which they give lessons on the ‘alleged Temple’…
In addition, the head of the Department for Jerusalem Affairs rejected the criminal actions being perpetrated by the Israeli occupation authorities, which contradict all norms and international conventions: the ongoing excavations beneath the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He emphasized that these excavations, deep underground, which target the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, have been going on non-stop for years, to the point that a gigantic synagogue has been built beneath the Mosque.”
