Israel Reopens Al Aqsa Mosque, But Palestinians

Israel reopens Al Aqsa mosque, but Palestinians refuse to enter



The Israeli government resumed an ultra-sensitive sanctuary on Sunday after being indicted for murdering two police officers, but Islamic worshipers refused to enter new security measures, including metal detectors and cameras.

Many audiences went to Haram al-Sharif in Jerusalem and shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great), known to the Jews as Temple Mount.

Flashpoint The sacred sites include Al Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

A cry of prayer came to Al Aqsa, but dozens of Muslim worshipers protested the new security measures and prayed outside the site at noon.

About 150 people gathered to hold a prayer meeting late in the afternoon. Police said about 200 people entered the compound.


Sheikh Omar Kiswani, director of Al Aqsa, rejected the changes imposed by the Israeli government. "We will not pass through this metal detector."

Some women wept and cried as they told people not to enter.

Waheeb Liftawi (52 years old) shouted prayers inside Al Aqsa at noon. Later in the afternoon prayer, he prayed.

"These things should not be put in front of the Mosque Chapel," he said. "This is why we rejected it or it will be in its present state."

A day later, the funeral procession tried to enter the coffin but could not pass. Police said two doors opened to the holy site on Sunday and a metal detector was installed.

The proposal to change the security measures for this compound has been controversial in the past. Developed between Israel and Jordan in 2015, the plan was divergent on how to operate the camera in the field.

Haram al-Sharif / Temple Mount is the center of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Palestinians fearing Israel may someday claim additional control over Israel.

It was located in eastern Jerusalem, occupied by Israel in 1967, and was later merged into a movement not recognized by the international community.

It is the third holy place in Islam and considered to be the most sacred place for Jews.

Jews can visit, but do not pray to avoid causing tension.
