Israel bans call to prayers in Al-Ibrahimi Mosque 58 times in March.

Ramallah, April 5 (Petra)-Israeli occupation forces banned the call to prayers at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque 58 times during last March.

Head of Islamic Awaqaf in Hebron Zeyad Jabari Monday stressed that Israel banned the call to prayers at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque 58 times during last March in order not to disturb Jewish settlers in the occupied part of the mosque compound during performing their religious rites.

"Israel willfully denies Muslims free access to their holy sites preventing them from practicing their religious rites, boldly violating international laws and conventions which guarantee the right to reach holy sites safe and secure", he added.

In a statement to reporters, Jaabari stated he sent an urgent letter to Palestinian Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs Mahmoud Habash, exposing Israeli provocative act and condemning its unjustified measures inside Al-Ibrahimi mosque.
