Jordanian delegation visits Islamic cemetery in Jerusalem

Senior Jordanian delegation yesterday visited the historical Islamic cemetery of Bab Al-Rahma, adjacent to Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Anadolu Agency reported.

The delegation included the Executive Manager of the Hashemite Fund Wasfi Al-Kilani, the Director of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Department in the Jordanian Endowment Ministry, Abdullah Al-Abadi, and the representative of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Palestine, Ahmed al-Sabt.

In addition to visiting the cemetery, the Jordanian delegation visited the neighbourhood of Wad Al-Hilwah and Silwan, which are subjected to continuous Israeli aggression.

Employees from the Wadi Al-Hilwah Information Centre accompanied the Jordanian delegation and briefed them about the proposed Israeli judaisation projects.

They also presented the Jordanian delegation with details of the daily Israeli harassment of Jerusalemites, telling them that the Israeli occupation works hard to prevent burying dead Palestinians in the Islamic cemeteries in the holy city.
