Benjamin Netanyahu wants execution of Palestinian who stabbed to death 3 Israelis

Avi Dichter

The occupied Palestinian territories have witnessed new tensions ever since Israeli forces introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshippers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in August 2015.

Muslim leaders, including the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, said worshipers are encouraged to return to the holy site. Abbas said Thursday decision had not been made on whether to renew it.

Following global pressure, Israel's security cabinet chose to remove the metal detectors but said a new surveillance system using "smart checks" based on advanced technology would be put in place.+.

Michael Lynk, the United Nations special rapporteur on situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory, has accused Israel of human rights violations amid the ongoing crisis around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and called on Tel Aviv to end the "occupation" of East Jerusalem and other Palestinian lands.

Israel installed metal detectors، cameras and other measures following a July 14 attack in which two policemen were shot dead.

The police said in a press statement that on Friday, it will deploy its reinforcement in East Jerusalem to prevent any violent clashes that may break out at Al-Aqsa Mosque and in the old city.

The courtyard outside the mosque's entrance, where the protests started in response to the installation of new metal detectors, which had been already removed Tuesday, appeared to have returned to its previous set-up, as the mosque's leadership had previously demanded.

WhatsApp's Latest Milestone is 1-Billion Daily Active Users
Mark Zuckerberg also announced that 250 million use Whatsapp Status every day , which, to be honest, is a bit of a surprise. A Twitter user has even posted a screenshot of the alleged recall feature on the WhatsApp Web version number 0.2.5370.

It followed a decision Monday by the Israeli security cabinet to remove the metal detectors but the guardrails were left behind.

Momani expressed Jordan's appreciation of the role of Jerusalemites and al-Aqsa guards, who confronted the latest Israeli measures and refused to accept and deal with these violations, hailing at the same time their steadfastness and fixed stance in defending their holy shrine.

The following week, three Palestinians were killed in Friday protests by Israeli forces in what was dubbed a "day of rage".

But just as the Waqf was preparing to issue instructions for a fresh round of rioting, Israeli Police opened the gate, allowing Muslim hordes to stream through, straight into the Temple Mount compound with nary a security check.

For its part, the Palestinian consensus government considered that "the entry of the Al-Aqsa Mosque today is a great historical moment that paves the way for liberation and preaches the imminent disappearance of the Israeli occupation". Palestinians say the Israeli measures are aimed at paving the way for the Judaization of the city.

In his July 24 report, Rory Jones informs readers that USA envoy Jason Greenblatt visited the region following "a weekend of violence over security at the Jerusalem site-known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary-in which three Israelis and at least three Palestinians were killed". He said he also disagreed with the policies that Israel is imposing on their holy sites and is calling on Christians and Jews to unite against this issue.
