Mosque doors glued shut by Israeli settlers in occupied Jerusalem

ISRAELI settlers were accused of glueing together the doors of a mosque in occupied Jerusalem’s Old City yesterday.

Police were informed after an adhesive substance was found on the locks of the Sheikh Makki Mosque at the Muslim holy site.

It is the latest act in a campaign of violence and vandalism allegedly perpetrated by Israeli settlers.

Some 600,000 settlers live in Jewish-only settlements in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank, in violation of international law.

Rights group B’Tselem suggested that “settler violence and vandalism takes place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault, at other times they stand idly by.

“The police make no substantial effort to investigate the incidents nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real time.”
