Israel says to reopen Al Aqsa Mosque on Sunday

Malaysia condemns in the strongest terms the Friday closure of the al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli authorities.

On Friday, three Arab-Israeli gunmen shot dead two Israeli policemen on the outskirts of the compound, holy to Muslims and Jews, and were then killed by security forces.

Jordan Engineers Association also said in a statement sent to the Jordan Times that the al-Aqsa Mosque closure was a "terrorist act" that contradicted the worldwide law and shows Tel Aviv's "disrespect" for Muslims.

Netanyahu's office said security would be increased with metal detectors at the entrances to the site and security cameras outside it.

The senior cleric was detained near al-Aqsa Mosque after he led Friday prayers. "It must be open".

Jaffa Gate, heavily used by tourists and near the Old City's Jewish Quarter, was open but with a heavy police presence.

The attack and aftermath was one of the most serious incidents in Jerusalem in recent years.

Tony Blair: EU leaders willing to be flexible on free movement
But pressed in interviews, he declined to identify the sources who had indicated which leaders he was referring to. How this could be achieved is a different matter; Mr Blair thinks it can form part of negotiations.


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the shooting in a phone interview with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the official Palestinian News Agency, Wafa. The attackers were Muslim citizens of Israel.

Clearly the rightwing terrorist regime at the helm of the so-called government of the Israeli state is led by warmongers who have been killing, destroying and suffocating the indigenous Palestinian population for decades and will use any pretext to physically demolish Al Aqsa with malicious intent in keeping with Zionist goals.

The Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Palestinians fearing Israel may one day seek to assert further control over it.

It is located in East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel since the 1967 Middle East war.

Jews are allowed to visit but not pray there to avoid provoking tensions.

More than 300 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since October 2015, when the tensions intensified.

The violence had greatly subsided in recent months.
