Gaza, ALRAY - The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) condemned the Israeli occupation authorities’ scheme to destroy a 1200-year-old archeological site in an Arab town, north of occupied Jerusalem as a means to build a logistic center for "Modi'in” settlement.


The ISESCO stated that this criminal scheme is a destruction of the Palestinian cultural heritage, an assault on its historic memory, and a disrespect for the international conventions and declarations relevant to cultural heritage.


The ISESSCO called upon International organizations, particularly the UNESCO, to intervene to stop this criminal act and to protect the Palestinian heritage being wracked by the Israeli Occupation authorities.


It is worthy to mention that the site was unearthed by Israeli archeologists, and turned out to be a prosperous town from the early Islamic period.
