PA TV host: Israel is digging tunnels under Arab neighborhood in attempt to build "alleged" temple and destroy Al-Aqsa

Official PA TV program The Occupied Capital, on the Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan
Member of the Silwan Neighborhood Defense Committee Fakhri Abu Diab: “It [Israel] wants to bring back [to life] in a deceptive manner the forged history, and to give a Jewish and Talmudic character to this area, while the excavations and history have not proven that Jews have any culture, history, or past in this area.”
Official PA TV host: “Opposite the Jewish settlements aboveground, there is a network of tunnels which the Israeli establishment has dug out under the Silwan neighborhood, which has caused dangerous fissures in the homes and streets of Silwan. All of these tunnels, whose lengths are hundreds of meters, turn in the direction of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and reach the foot of it, especially the southwest corner. The Zionist establishment takes advantage of these tunnels as tourist routes which serve their attempt to build the alleged hall [of the Temple] and its accompanying buildings, at the expense of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
