Some 99 attacks on holy sites were committed by the Israeli occupation forces in the Palestinian territories during March 2017, a report by Palestinian's Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs revealed on Monday.

According to the report, the occupation forces have committed more than 99 attacks and violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, and other holy sites during last month.

The report, which was published by Quds Press on Monday, stated that the occupation banned the call for prayers in the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of Hebron during March. It added that the worshipers had been exposed to several inspections while entering the mosque, as part of the restriction imposed by the Israeli forces on the holy site.
