Israel bans azan at Ibrahimi Mosque 44 times in Feb.

RAMALLAH (Petra) -- Israeli occupation forces have banned azan (the call for the daily Muslim Prayers) at the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron 44 times in February, according to Palestinian religious affairs authorities.

Hebron Awqaf (religious endowment) Department director Zaid Al Jaabari said that Israeli authorities had stopped azan under the pretext it was a nuisance to Jewish settlers in the occupied part of the city where the mosque is located.

Jaabari deplored the recurring Israeli bans as "a racist assault" against Arab and Muslim holy sites in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
