Arabs claim Israel demolished Izz ad-Din al-Qassam's grave

Arabic media are claiming:

Zionist bulldozers demolished the tomb of the martyr Izz al-Din al-Qassam in Haifa, in a move that comes as part of a series of ongoing attacks on Islamic and Arabic holy places and symbols.
They claim that the destruction was done in order to put in a train line, and that this isn't the first time the tomb was demolished.

The Syrian-born al-Qassam was one of the earliest Palestinian Arab terrorists, who was killed by the British in 1935. Hamas named its military wing and Qassam rockets after him. His tomb was a place of pilgrimage for terror-supporting Arabs and Muslims.

I have no idea if there is any truth to this story, but it sounds bogus. I couldn't find any mention of it in Hebrew media.

Not that I would lose any sleep if it was true.
