Abbas to hold meeting with Palestinian officials over Temple Mount tensions

21 Juillet 2017

Israel police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Palestinians hurled stones and glass bottles at officers after the prayers outside the site, referred to by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and by Jews as the Temple Mount.

Rather, they called on Netanyahu to remove the metal detectors, calling them "collective punishment" and a violation of religious freedom. "The metal detectors must be removed immediately", said MKs Ahmed Tibi and Osama Sa'adi (Joint List) in a statement.

"I'm reading in the worldwide press about heavy pressure leveled at Prime Minister Netanyahu to give up our security needs on Temple Mount and cancel the metal detectors placed at the entrance, just as there are metal detectors at the Kotel and in Mecca", said Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

Today (Friday), Friday prayers at the Temple Mount will take place for the first time since the deadly terror attack in which two Israeli Border Policemen were murdered. During the night, checkpoints have been set up on the main roads to the city and buses coming from Arab town won't be able to continue.

The security establishment is preparing for clashes and protests against the security measures.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his security chiefs were to discuss the situation late yesterday after he returned from visits to France and Hungary.
