    OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Father Atallah Hanna, the Greek Orthodox patriarchate of occupied Jerusalem, appealed to the world's churches to urgently intervene to stop Israel from obliterating the Christian religious landmarks in the deserted village of Ein Kerem, west of the holy city.

    Father Hanna made his remarks following a field visit he made Wednesday to the village in order to check on the Christian historical site which Israel started to demolish.

    Hanna called on all heads of churches worldwide to move to protect the Christian religious sites and take legal action to prevent Israel from building on Christian shrines in this village.

    He noted that the Christian antiquities in this village refer to the history of the first church and the Christian presence during the first four centuries AD.

    Ein Kerem village is one of hundreds of Palestinian villages which the Israeli occupation had wiped out and displaced its native residents.
