Palestinians Heroically Confront Israeli Attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque

Muslims clash with Israeli police at Jerusalem holy site

Sacred to Muslims, Christians and Jews, Jerusalem is home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which for Muslims represents the world's third holiest site.

Sunday marks both the start of Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday commemorating the end of the annual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, and the Jewish fast day of Tisha B'Av, when Jews mourn the destruction of the temples that once stood on the esplanade and other disasters in Jewish history.

"International justice is one-eyed and the justice that is not won through worldwide laws will be taken through the resilience and resistance of the peoples", Bassil went on to say.

Police were expected to decide on allowing Jewish pilgrims to visit the Temple Mount early Sunday, as religious tensions spiked over the confluence of Jewish and Muslim holy days centered around the flashpoint holy site.

In a bid to ease tensions, police initially barred Jewish visits to the site on Sunday but Muslim worshippers still feared they would be allowed in and protested there.

Israeli security forces scuffle with Palestinians at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem on August 11, 2019. It put the number of Muslim worshippers at the site at some 60,000.

Jewish visitors then entered the area under heavy police guard and no serious violence was reported.

Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee, held Israel responsible for "fuelling religious tensions in Jerusalem". Jews refer to the area as the "Temple Mount", claiming it was the site of two prominent Jewish temples in ancient times.

After the confrontations died down, Jerusalem District Police Chief Doron Yedid said on Kan radio that he had lifted the ban.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Middle East war.

In a separate incident on Sunday, Israeli troops killed a Palestinian gunman after he opened fire on them from across the perimeter fence around the Gaza Strip.

Israel annexed East Jerusalem in the 1967 war and declared the whole city as its eternal indivisible capital in 1980, but the move has never been recognized by most of the worldwide community.

Officers responded with tear gas, Israeli media said.
