Israeli forces bombed the Gaza strip in a densely populated area killing 83 Palestinians including 17 Children, 6 women (Gaza's Health Ministry confirmed on Thursday 13 may 2021), More than 300 people have been wounded. Gaza is in need of medical assistance, food, and temporary shelter as of now. Palestininans marked a Deadly Eid-Al-Fitr as continuing Air Strikes.
Now you must be thinking, why is this fight over East Jerusalem and attacking Gaza?
So the answer is that Jerusalem is important for all three Christians, Islam and Jews. All three religions relate the story of their beginnings to the Prophet Abraham of the Bible.
Christianity is associated with this region because they believe that this is the place where Jesus was crucified on the hill of Calvary. His mausoleum is located inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and was also the site of his resurrection. Therefore Christians consider this place.
This place is important for Muslims because the Dome of Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque are located here. This mosque is the third holiest site in Islam and Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad traveled from Mecca to here during the journey and prayed with all Prophet's spirits. Just a few steps from this mosque, the Dome of Rock is the cornerstone and Muslims believe that it was from here that Prophet Muhammad went towards paradise.
And the Jews call Jerusalem their own because they believe that this is the place where the whole world was built by laying the foundations and this is where Abraham offered his son Isaac. In the Jewish part, there is the Kotel or Western Wall, the wall is a remnant of the holy temple. That means Jerusalem, Christianity, Islam and Judaism are at the center of all three religions and all the disputes also start from here.
The current controversy is also that Jews in East Jerusalem are threatening Palestinians to leave their homes and they also prevent them from going to the Al Aqsa Mosque because they say that this place belongs to the Western Wall.
During the Second World War, when Germany's dictator Adolf Hitler slaughtered 6 million Jews, most Jews from Western countries came to Palestine in want of their country. And then in the year 1947, the United Nations voted to divide Palestine into Jews and Arabs, and Jerusalem was made an international city.
However, when this was not accepted by the Palestinians, the British rulers set the region free, and it was at this time that the Jewish leaders announced the creation of a country called Israel. But it never got the support of the Islamic countries of the Middle East. And Israel also had to fight a war after it was established as a nation.
