Israel extremists 'vandalize Palestinian cemetery' near Ramla

Feb. 9, 2014 11:01 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 11, 2014 12:13 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli extremists have vandalized a cemetery in the Palestinian village of al-Muzayria, in the district of Ramla in central Israel, whose Palestinian population were displaced in 1948, according to a Jerusalem-based organization.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage said in a statement Sunday that a team representing the foundation visited the cemetery to evaluate the damage.

Fifteen graves were vandalized, according to the foundation which explained that the graves were unearthed and their old gravestones were smashed.

Abdul-Majid Igbariyya, an Al-Aqsa official, says the Israeli authorities “are fully responsible for this ugly criminal act.”

“This is a chain in a series of organized criminal acts by extremist Jewish groups against Islamic holy places across the country,” he added. The foundation will repair the damage to restore the cemetery’s sanctity, he added. He noted that the concerned authorities would be notified.

The statement highlighted that the same cemetery had been vandalized several times.

An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately respond to inquiries late Sunday.
