The Minister of religious Affairs of the Palestinian national authority Yusuf Eid said that for 2017 the Israel 645 times obstructed the prayers of the Muslims «mosque Ibrahimia». So the Arabs called the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

He said that he appealed to international bodies, primarily UNESCO, with an official complaint against the «invaders», which, according to him, prevents religious freedom in a Muslim Shrine.

Recall that in July 2017, UNESCO recognized the Old city of Hebron (al-Khalil) and the Cave of the Patriarchs to Palestinian cultural heritage site of worldwide importance. The connection of the tomb with the Jews and Israel denied.

Due to continued anti-Israel attacks the US and Israel announced the release of this international organization. Add that the United States make a significant contribution to the budget of UNESCO, and the decision of the administration, trump would entail a sharp reduction in funding.
