According to Al-Aqsa Foundation which campaigns for the defence of Islamic holy sites, the Israeli bulldozers are demolishing the frontages and arches of an historic Islamic building few dozen meters away from the Al-Aqsa mosque compound. The Al-Aqsa foundation said in a statement the demolition paves the way for an Israeli project to build a complex including a synagogue, a reception hall and a police station.
