Minister warns of Israel's persistence in violating Al-Aqsa Mosque's sanctity

18 Juillet 2017

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly instructed that the Temple Mount compound be gradually reopened from Sunday morning, after it was temporarily closed following a terror attack on Friday morning in which three Arab Israelis shot dead two Israeli police officers. He further added that the Israeli move runs contrary to the principles of religious coexistence and world and social peace and forms sheer breach of global law.

"We hold the Israeli government responsible for the changes they have made in the al-Aqsa Mosque and taking its control away from us".

"When they saw policemen, they shot at them and then escaped towards one of the mosques in the Temple Mount compound", Ms Simri said.

Clashes erupted outside Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque compound on Sunday as Israeli authorities implemented new security measures at the Mosque entrance.

Police said that despite the tensions, hundreds of worshippers had entered the compound.

According to a report Friday, among the suspects detained in the attack was at least one Waqf official who police suspect may have aided the terrorists, who all came from the northern Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm.

Jordan is the custodian of the compound in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, and has repeatedly denounced what it says are violations of rules at Islam's third holiest site.

"What happened does not justify this", Abu Mohammed, who works at a small medical clinic inside the compound, told Al Jazeera.

Immediately after the incident, Israel shut down the compound, saying that security forces need to check the site for more militants or ammunition.

Abbas also demanded the cancellation of Israeli measures closing Al-Aqsa Mosque to worshippers, according to WAFA. Any perceived changes to the delicate arrangements at the site can spark tensions.

In an unusual move, Israeli security forces closed the site after the exchange of gunfire at the Haram Al-Sharif.

In a statement after a meeting in Cairo on the recent developments in East Jerusalem, The Council said the Israeli measures there are a blatant breach of Palestinian worship rights.

"Jordan has used and will use all tools, diplomatic and legal, in order to halt any attempt to alter the legal and historical status quo in Jerusalem", Momani said in the statement.

"When I go shopping on Friday I pass through a detector at the mall", Halevy said.

During that period, Israeli forces have killed more than 254 Palestinians, a lot of them said by Israel to be attackers while others were killed in clashes with Israeli forces.

"But what are you doing with regards to the broader conflict that leads to this situation in the first place", he asked.
