GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Two brothers on Friday sustained injuries in the Gaza Strip after a self-immolation attempt to protest the destruction of a family-owned factory...protesting the government’s decision to demolish a building and build a mosque in its place.
The land on which the factory is built belongs to the government, but it has been rented by the family in an open-ended contract for decades, he added.
“A bulldozer razed the factory west of Khan Younis,” brother Sameh al-Tartouri said. “We reached an agreement to get half of the land, but they destroyed the whole factory.”
Another mosque they need?
