Israel Hid discovery of Old City Islamic Site


ANTIQUITIES AUTHORITY HID DISCOVERY OF ISLAMIC SITE AT MUGRABI

The Israel Antiquities Authority said that what could be an Islamic prayer room was found at the site of the Mugrabi ramp in the Old City of Jerusalem, where excavation work has sparked angry protests by Muslims who say the work endangers the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Muslim leaders and critics of the digging said the announcement of the find, three years after it was discovered, confirmed their fears that the Antiquities Authority is intent on hiding Muslim attachment to the site.
