Al-Aqsa Mosque, Israel to inaugurate a new synagogue underneath Al-Aqsa Mosque, 19 December, 2017- Egypt Today
CAIRO - 19 December 2017: Palestine’s Safa news agency is unravellingIsrael's plan to inaugurate a synagogue near the Wailing Wall in the frame of ceaseless digging works underneath Al-Aqsa Mosque.
"The Synagogue is marked by a special design inclusive of iron bars where the 'Biblical travels' sentence is written on each, along with roundtable and tens of wooden disks," reported Safa news agency on Tuesday.
The ongoing digging works beneath Al-Aqsa mosque started 12 years ago against the Jews'allegations that "the foundation rock" of King Solomon exists underneath Al-Aqsa mosque, according to Safa news Agency.
Inauguration of the said synagogue coincides with the call of Israeli culture Minister Miri Regev, addressing the government to allocate a budget for digging works to keep going. This move came in cooperation with the so-called 'Israeli Antiquities Agency' to disclose a plan set by Regev.
This escalationcame in the aftermath of Trump's announcement that the United States officially recognizes the occupied Jerusalem as Israel's capital and will move its embassy there from its current location, Tel Aviv.
