Israel forces dig up Palestinian graves in Jerusalem

Officers of Israel’s Nature And Parks Authority (INPA) reportedly resumed excavation work yesterday at the Palestinian Bab Al-Rahma cemetery, just outside the walls of the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem, according to the Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that INPA staff began digging up graves and land in the cemetery around 20 days ago. Officials returned yesterday to continue digging, which Wafa noted was in order to build “a national [Israeli] park on parts of the cemetery’s land”.
