JERUSALEM (Ma‘an) 26 June -- Israeli authorities bulldozed over 100 gravestones in a 12th-century Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem overnight Saturday, the Al-Aqsa Foundation for Waqf and Heritage said. The foundation said three bulldozers, two trucks and around 20 workers entered the historic Mamilla (Ma'man Allah) cemetery at 11 p.m. and destroyed over 100 gravestones, loading rubble from the gravestones into a truck ... In 2009, Israel disinterred over 1,500 graves in the historic cemetery to build a Museum of Tolerance on the historic site, funded by the US Simon Wiesenthal Center ... Prophet Muhammad's companions, numerous Sufi saints, jurists and Palestinian dignitaries are said to be buried at the site.
