Live snapshots reveal secret Israeli excavations beneath Aqsa Mosque Published: Thu, 11-October-2018

Deputy head of the Islamic Movement in territories occupied in 1948 (Israel), Kamal al-Khatib, released a set of pictures showing the damage wrought by Israel’s large-scale excavations beneath Al-Quds's (Jerusalem’s) holy al-Aqsa Mosque.

Posted on al-Khatib’s Facebook page, the live photos were initially sent by an Israeli engineer to his friends as he boasted about his achievements in the underground excavations below and around al-Aqsa.

Al-Khatib said the excavations, which have been kept secret by the Israeli occupation authorities, seek an underground extension to the Buraq Wall (al-Aqsa’s western wall), in the first such move since 1670.

He added modern pipes have been installed, proving the fact that the excavations are a new creation.

The Israeli occupation authorities have embarked on excavations, both secret and announced, since 1967 in the hunt for the alleged temple mount, which historical chronicles say is a mere allusion that only exists in Israelis’ dreams.
