A Jerusalem wall collapses from rain; Arabs blame "Al Aqsa excavations" (updated)

Palestine Today has a headline that there was a "landslide" in Jerusalem as a wall collapsed, and cracks appeared in walls, due to - they claim- Israeli excavations under the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Reading the article a little further you can see that the damage was not very close to Al Aqsa - it was in the Al Bustan neighborhood, hundreds of meters away - and that the damage came about as a result of heavy rains that have fallen on Jerusalem and the entire area over the last couple of weeks.

This is just the latest attempt to incite Arabs against Israel.

UPDATE: Ma'an has the story, where the Al Aqsa Foundation is blaming Israeli digs on the "landslide," - but it doesn't even mention the heavy rains in Jerusalem lately.
