An area collapsed near the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem late Tuesday, reported the Turkish Anadolu news agency.
An eyewitness told the agency that the collapse occurred near the Bab as Silsila, on the western part of the mosque. It is the second collapse near the western wall within five years, Cum’a Usayle, an eyewitness, told Anadolu.
“The collapse has caused a deep hole there. It is dangerous for the Al-Aqsa Mosque. It poses danger especially for children and women,” he said.
The report claimed that no security precautions around the area have been taken by Israeli officials so far, nor has there been a statement about the incident.
The Al-Aqsa Foundation and Cultural Heritage Organization accused Israel, as it usually does, of paving the way for demolishing the Al-Aqsa Mosque by “building new settlements and digging dozens of tunnels.”
