JERUSALEM, Tuesday, March 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Heads of churches in Jerusalem expressed their condemnation and rejection of settlers’ breaking into the Little Petra Hotel, a place of rest of Christian pilgrims for decades, in the Old City of Jerusalem.

A delegation of Heads of churches in Jerusalem, foreign diplomats, and Islamic and Christian figures, affirmed during a visit to the hotel their support for the hotel’s management and employees, denouncing the settlers’ storming of the hotel under the protection of the occupation police.

On Saturday night individuals with Ateret Cohanim broke into the Little Petra Hotel as well as into a local money-changing shop owned by the Patriarchate and rented by a Palestinian Jerusalemite at the hotel’s entrance.

Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Committee to support Jerusalem and holy sites, Hatem Abdel-Qader, said that this visit is an act of solidarity with the Petra and Imperial hotels which belong to the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem, stressing the importance of two sites that serve as gateways to the Old City of Jerusalem and Christian holy sites.
