(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage (AFEH) issued a statement on Tuesday revealing that the occupation authorities had recently ratified a budget of four million shekels (more than one million dollars) to establish a Jewish center.
The center will be built under the name "audio-visual Museum", at the entrance of Wadi Hilweh neighborhood, a few meters from the south of Al Aqsa Mosque.
The foundation added that the site on which the center will be set up is a historic water well and a cavity of seven meters under the ground. The museum will be connected to the tunnels' network dug by the occupation underground in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
This project comes within the plan of establishing seven JewishTalmudic buildings around Al-Aqsa mosque, revealed the foundation.
It also said that the occupation is carrying out extensive excavation in the area in preparations to build the museum.
It noted that the occupation prevented Al-Aqsa Foundation's crew from entering inside the well during their field visit claiming that it is not open to the general public, revealing that the Zionist Ministry of Tourism and the occupation's Municipality in Jerusalem participate in the financing of this project, which is run by "Elad" settlement organization.
The Foundation warned of escalating the implementation of the Judaizing plans around Al Aqsa Mosque, noting that the establishment of such projects by the occupation has been remarkably increasing since 45 years, and especially after the Arab spring.
