Israeli authorities have turned a historic mosque, situated in North Palestine, 13th century Al Ahmar (Red) into a wedding hall and night club.
“I was shocked when I saw aspects of sabotage inside the mosque,” Khair Tabari, the secretary of a Palestinian Islamic endowment agency, told London-based newspaper,

Al-Ahmar Mosque has been repurposed several times since 1948 – first into a Jewish school, then an election campaigns centre, then a clothing shop and now a bar and events hall.
