Muslims refuse to pass through al-Aqsa metal detectors

Muslim worshippers clash with Israeli police during a protest outside Lion's Gate of Jerusalem's Old City at the entrance to the al-Aqsa mosque compound against Israel's newly-implemented security measures, on July 17, 2017.

The Israeli government's installation of metal detectors at the mosque's gates has led to a wave of anger among Palestinians, who called for their immediate removal.

"This evening I held a discussion with the top security leadership and I instructed that metal detectors be placed at the entrance gates to the Temple Mount", he said.

"We will not enter through these metal detectors", he added.

The imam, who is also a former grand mufti of Jerusalem, was among scores of Palestinians injured during clashes with Israeli forces in east Jerusalem late Tuesday.

A number of local and global human rights groups have raised concerns that Israeli security forces have used excessive force when confronting Palestinians who had carried out attacks or been suspected of doing so.

Following the instalment of the metal detectors, Palestinians have refused to worship inside the mosque in protest against the new measures. In 2014 Jordan, the USA 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.

It was the second day of Muslim protest against what they call a violation of the status quo in the flashpoint compound.

Both the Israelis and the Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital.

A dispute over metal detectors is escalating into a new showdown between Israel and the Muslim world over a Jerusalem shrine that has triggered major Israeli-Palestinian confrontations in the past.

Dire economic conditions have forced Arab, especially Christian, families to leave, while Israel rarely gives building permits to Arab residents and has taken measures to destroy entire neighbourhoods close to Al Haram Al Sharif. "The Israeli side is trying to transform the conflict form a political one to a religious one", Abu Rudeinah said.

Police said that the man was detained for "disturbing the peace". "We will not allow any party to break the law, in any way", the police said in a statement.

Jerusalem District Police Commander Yoram Ha-Levy ordered on Wednesday that a group of Jewish visitors be distanced from the Temple Mount for violating the "visitation guidelines" and announced that the holy site is now closed to all Jewish people.

Jordan and the Palestinian Authority have rejected any attempt to change the current status of Al Aqsa. Waqf trust accused Israel of "changing the historical status quo", referring to the prayer arrangements at the site of great religious importance for Jews and Muslims.

The Wakf ordered Muslims not to comply with the new measures, warning yet again that the al-Aksa Mosque is endangered.
