TULKAREM (Ma’an) – The Palestinian ministry of tourism and antiquities has accused Israel of ruining an archeological cemetery between Nablus and Tulkarem in the northern West Bank near the village of Deir Sharaf.

Director of the ministry’s department of antiquities protection Salih Tawafsha told Ma’an that the Israeli antiquities authority escorted with Israeli forces “stole all the contents of the cemetery” after they carried out “illegal” excavations while the Israelis refurbished the main road.

Such procedures, says Tawafsha, mark a violation of heritage-related international conventions.

He highlighted that experts from the Palestinian ministry of tourism and antiquities went to the cemetery to do excavations, but the Israelis denied them access.

Israeli's know no boundaries and have no respect for anyone, alive or dead. They are searching for evidence that their King David actually existed. None has been definitively found so far as with most fables.

Well Muslims also believe that David (Dawud) aley salem existed, but they don't need to ransack cemeteries and steal the contents to prove it. Faith is usually enough, but obviously not in Zionism.

Yeah, I'm talking about you. What exactly did the Arabs do to the JEWISH cemetery on Mt of Olives between 1948-1967? This cemetery, just like Mamilla, was abandoned. Do you go there to visit your relatives? Do you even care? But no, it was totally cool to use headstones of Jewish graves to pave your streets. Besides, they are paving a road, not trying to prove that David existed.
