Jewish groups have attacked the Psalmist Mosque in occupied Jerusalem and destroyed the Ottoman tiles in the mosque, the Al-Aqsa Foundation and Cultural Heritage Organization said.
In a written statement released, the Al-Aqsa Foundation and Cultural Heritage Organization said that Jewish groups attacked the Psalmist Mosque, located in the south-west of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and destroyed Ottoman marbles and tiles from the 17th century.
"Israel had turned the first storey of the mosque into a synagogue in the past despite the fact that it was an Islamic architecture," the statement underlined.
The attack on the mosque caused anger and this was not the first time that the mosque was desecrated, the statement said.
The Chairman of the Al-Aqsa Foundation and Cultural Heritage Organization, Zeki Muhammad Igbariyye stressed that the Psalmist Mosque should be returned to its actual owners and should be an Islamic mosque.
