‘Israel’ Removes Aqsa Metal Detectors, Palestinians Reject New Measures
Local Editor

The ‘Israeli' occupation entity removed metal detectors from entrances to the holy Aqsa mosque compound in al-Quds Old City in favor of CCTV cameras, a measure that is still unacceptable by the Palestinians.

‘Israel' Removes Aqsa Metal Detectors, Palestinians Reject New Measures

The Zionist apartheid regime installed metal detectors at entry points to the holy site after a resistance operation that targeted two Zionist soldiers on July 14.

Meanwhile, as Palestinians maintained a boycott of al-Quds holy site, President Mahmoud Abbas and the senior Muslim preacher who oversees Al-Haram al-Sharif compound both dismissed the new ‘Israeli' measures and demanded all of them be removed.

"All new ‘Israeli' measures put in place since [July 14] must be removed so things can go back to normal in [al-Quds] and we can resume our work regarding bilateral relations," Abbas said at the beginning of a meeting with the Palestinian leadership.

The ‘Israeli' decision to remove metal detectors came in the face of intense international diplomacy seeking to prevent the dispute over Al-Haram al-Sharif mosque compound from sparking wider Palestinian unrest.

The Waqf, the religious body that runs the Islamic sites in the compound, said worshippers would continue to stay away from the holy site and pray in the streets outside.

Palestinians saw the new security measures as an ‘Israeli' attempt to assert further control over the site.

By Tuesday evening, thousands of worshipers prayed at the Old City's Lion's Gate, one of the main flashpoints in recent days.
