JERUSALEM'S AL-AQSA MOSQUE FIRE BURNS AT THE SAME TIME AS FLAMES ENGULF NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL IN PARI

JERUSALEM'S AL-AQSA MOSQUE FIRE BURNS AT THE SAME TIME AS FLAMES ENGULF NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL IN PARIS

"SNIP....

A fire broke out at the revered Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem just as flames ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Footage showing smoke and fire emerging from the roof of a structure known as the Marwani Prayer Room, or Solomon's Stables, could be seen on social media. The Palestine News Agency, the official outlet of the Palestinian National Authority, cited a guard as saying Monday that "the fire broke out in the guard's room outside the roof of the Marwani Prayer Room, and the fire brigade of the Islamic Waqf handled the matter successfully."

News of the incident at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam and central to the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, was largely overshadowed by a much larger blaze engulfing the Notre Dame Cathedral at the same time.

The Palestine News Agency reported that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' office "expressed its deep regret Monday over the fire that broke out at the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in the center of the French capital of Paris, which caused the collapse of the cathedral tower."

19. I'm a former Chicagoan and didn't know about this other fire. Or the mosque fire.

Seems like the world is aflame these past few days. Very tragic.
But we know the French will re-build. They are a stoic people.
And the Palestinians as well.

22. Deadliest fire in US history. Burned a huge tract of old forest following severe drought.

15. And the place was built out

and made not just ruins and underground storeroom (or "water storage", depending on who you listen to) in late 1996. Less than 23 years old.

Before that, it was used a stables during the Crusades. But all that was left from that was stone and rock and dirt.

Otherwise it was the site of some pretty serious digging into Roman-period (or older) strata without permits or archeologists.

17. How awful!

Having more than one thing awful happen at the same time is a signature of Al Qaeda. I hope not, but this is horrible.

18. No. They say the fire in Notre Dame was likely due to construction.

20. This story is coming from sputnik news

""https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201904161074167005-Blaze-Erupts-Jerusalems-Historic-al-Aqsa-Mosque/

There is no other major American news org reporting this, only Newsweek.

Ma'an news has nothing about it:
