Zionist Regime Israel erases key Muslim, Christian holy sites from al-Quds ‘map’
Terrorist regime tourism ministry has published a map of the occupied Old City of al-Quds (Jerusalem), which omits significant Muslim and Christian holy sites and entire neighborhoods in the area.
The so-called Old City map, which is distributed free of charge at tourist information centers across the city, does not mark the venerated 14-hectare compound that comprises al-Aqsa Mosque — Islam’s third holiest site, Al Jazeera reported.
The map also fails to mark the Dome of the Rock as “al-Haram al-Sharif,” and simply refers to it by its Jewish name of the Temple Mount.
Moreover, the map makes no reference to the Church of St. Anne, which is a Roman Catholic church located near the Lions’ Gate and churches of the Flagellation and Condemnation in East al-Quds.
The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, the second Protestant church in Quds, is also shown on the map with a tiny and hard-to-find name.
The map, however, highlights dozens of sites whose historical importance is disputed, and a large number of them are indeed illegal settlements constructed in the Muslim and Christian quarters of the Old City of al-Quds.
Among 57 numbered sites, almost half are buildings occupied by illegal settlers in East Jerusalem and are largely unknown to licensed tour guides.
