Israeli forces closed down on Tuesday the Old City of Jerusalem, blocking access to the Aqsa Mosque, Radio Palestine reported. "Large numbers of Israeli forces and border guards are stationed in the town and around Al-Aqsa Mosque. All the town's entrances have been shut down," the radio added.
"Israeli bulldozers were seen heading towards the mosque and there are fears that they might destroy a bridge, two rooms, and a hill connecting the Buraq (wailing) Wall and the Aqsa Mosque. The Islamic Awqaf department meanwhile said such measures were part of a Judaizing plan for Jerusalem," the radio added.
