NEW VANDALISMS AT GREEK ORTHODOX CHAPEL OF ST SION
On the morning of Friday the 31st of May/13th of June 2014, the Dragoman’s Office of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, notified by the Israeli Police, arrived at the chapel/catacomb of the Holy Spirit on St Sion and witnessed the vandalisms caused again by extreme fanatic activists from the area around David’s Tomb.
The aforementioned activists broke into the heavy iron gate of the chapel, after breaking the chain, and desecrated the chapel with garbage, spreading to the holy Altar in the Eastern niche.
This description of such unacceptable, violent anti-Christian actions may be verified through the photographs herein below.
The Patriarchate of Jerusalem, at all times advocating appeasement, conciliation and a peaceful inter-religious coexistence, protests over such acts and extends its thanks to the Israeli Police of the area of David’s Gate for their support.
