News Digest: Dome of the Rock Lighting

“Watch as the lights of Dome of the Rock are completely lit last night [March 21, 2018]; this step comes after many years of being unable to completely illuminate the mosque because of measures taken by the Occupation.”

– Mukaber.net
“The Islamic Waqf [1] in Jerusalem lights the Dome of the Rock Mosque once again after the Occupation had prevented it from doing the necessary electrical maintenance for the mosque for many months.”

– Alquds Research Center
0202 Editor’ Note:
The Islamic Waqf essentially functions as the religious and civil administration of the Haram Al-Sharif. Following the 1967 war in which Israel took control the Old City of Jerusalem, the Israeli government decided to maintain Jordanian custodianship of the Waqf. Today, the Haram al-Sharif is governed and funded jointly by the Jordanian Waqf and the Waqf of the Palestinian Authority.
