PA daily accuses Israel of taking part in 1969 Al-Aqsa Mosque arson

"Israel tried to distance itself from the incident of the Al-Aqsa Mosque being set on fire [in 1969] (it was set on fire by the Christian Australian, Michael Rohan -Ed.), as noted in the Hebrew sources, namely the Israeli version, in order that it not be blamed by the world for being behind the event... However, Israel actually took advantage of the crime of setting the Al-Aqsa Mosque on fire, as Muhammad Jum'a Abu Rmeileh, who witnessed the crime, said to Al-Jazeera Net: 'The occupation stopped the water to the area around the Mosque, and likewise prevented the Jerusalem Municipality firetrucks [from reaching the area], took them over and said: "They are broken down," until the Hebron fire fighter services arrived.'"
