Ramallah, Jan. 2 (BNA): Palestinian Awqaf and Religious Affairs Minister Yousef Id'es said the Israeli occupation authorities blocked the Muslim Call for Prayers in Hebron’s sacred Ibrahimi Mosque 645 times in 2017, including 53 times in December alone.

Id’es called on international organizations, especially the UNESCO, to put an end to Israel’s violations against Islamic holy sites, including the Ibrahimi Mosque, the Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) reported.

The Ibrahimi Mosque, the burial place of Prophet Abraham, located in central Hebron, a frequent site of tensions due to the presence of around 500 Israeli settlers in the Old City.
