Al- Maqdisi Library "Jerusalem Library" was inaugurated in Damascus

ST- In a press statement on the occasion of the inaugurating of the Maqdisi Library "Jerusalem Library" Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban said that the existence of such libraries  comes at a time when we are in need for documentation and finding specialized centers for the researchers on the Palestinian issue. Our usurper enemy counterfeits history as its own, so we must document our rights in all fields, forums and global sites.  The documentation is part of the new awareness because identity, rights, history and the future of our children are the targeted ones.

The Maqdisi Library (Jerusalem Library), was inaugurated in Damascus yesterday by Al-Quds International Foundation, Syria, to be a basic source to any researcher or anyone interested in the Palestinian issue. The Library includes different maps, documents, books and manuscripts that vary between the political, poetry, literary and electronic categories.

Director General of the Foundation, Dr. Khalaf Al-Muftah, stressed the importance of opening the library as it contributes to the development of methods of preserving the identity of Arab Jerusalem, noting that the library includes researches and studies related to the Palestinian issue and the history of the city of Jerusalem.

In his turn, Secretary General of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, Khaled Abd al-Majid said that Damascus hosts every political, cultural and traditional work that are related to Jerusalem. He also hailed the great efforts exerted by al-Quds foundation in the service of the Palestinian cause.
