Hamas: Israeli plans to construct tunnel systems aimed at Judaizing Jerusalem

| Statements

The continuation of the Israeli settlement in Jerusalem, including the construction of tunnel systems that the Israeli occupation’s municipality plans to build, are part of its aggressive plans to Judaize the holy city. Such schemes are aimed to fabricate history, change the Arab and Islamic features of Jerusalem, and facilitate the access of Israeli settlers to the holy city.  

Jerusalem will remain the eternal capital of Palestine and the Israeli occupation’s attempts will fail to end the Palestinian existence in the city. The Palestinian people will stand steadfast in the face of the Israeli colonial plans.
