Global community must end increased al-Aqsa encroachment, says Palestinian PM

Global community must end increased al-Aqsa encroachment, says Palestinian PM

Earlier, six Palestinian worshippers were injured in clashes with the Israeli forces at Al-Aqsa Mosque's Al-Asbat Gate, among them the Secretary General of the Palestinian National Initiative (PNI) Mustafa Al-Barghouthi. The three attackers were seriously wounded, one of them was killed in cold blood, and the occupants prevented the doctors from providing assistance.

Israeli authorities then closed the compound, citing security concerns, hours before Muslim Friday prayers. Police closed the site briefly, reopening it 15 minutes later.

The violent altercations began in response to the installation of metal detectors outside the entrance to the Temple Mount.

The mufti called the closure "an escalation and aggression against al-Aqsa", the Arab-language name of the compound. In 2014 Jordan, the U.S. and Israel agreed on a number of steps to reduce tensions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including sticking to the status quo and restricting visits by non-Muslims. In Islam, the same structure is referred to as the Noble Sanctuary, with Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock as the third holiest site for Muslims.

The Muslim religious authority charged with managing Temple Mount has also expressed its anger over metal detectors being installed at the site.

The Wakf's decision to order preachers and imams not to deliver sermons in Jerusalem's mosques on Friday comes after Israel installed metal detectors on Sunday in front of the entrances to the Temple Mount.

Conflicts over the holy site, revered by Muslims and Jews, have repeatedly triggered Israeli-Palestinian confrontations. Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah held an emergency Cabinet meeting in Ramallah Tuesday and pledged support for Jerusalemites.

The media, including The Record, reported the vicious attack last week that took place at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The clashes erupted on Tuesday after Israeli troops fired teargas at demonstrators who had gathered outside the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in protest to the Tel Aviv regime's restrictive measures imposed on the holy Muslim site. They said Abbas and other "Arab political and religious leaders must now take concrete action to curb anti-Israel incitement". Areas [are] quiet and security measures continue.

Confrontations and scuffles have erupted between Palestinians and Israeli occupation forces outside the holy site.

Palestinians rejected the Israeli insistence that the metal detectors were required in light of the ongoing violence and use of fire arms.
