Palestinians against new obstacles Temple Mount
jerusalem - The Palestinians also reject the new security measures at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Israel removed the metal detectors at the entrance of the sanctuary on Tuesday to replace them with other 'less intrusive technical means' such as cameras. But the Palestinians still find the amended security measures unacceptable.
'We reject all obstacles that prevent freedom of worship and we ask for a return to the situation before July 14,' Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said.
Israel placed the metal detectors after an attack on July 14 at one of the entrances of the Temple Mount. In addition, three Israeli Arabs killed two Israeli police officers. The perpetrators were shot dead. The gates were on the Palestinian side of the Temple Mount.
