Israeli Police Reopen Al-Aqsa Complex on Wednesday

Al-Quds, MINA – Israeli Police Chief in Jerusalem (Al-Quds) Doron Yadid ordered the reopening of the Al-Aqsa Mosque Complex for Muslims on Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, the entire entrance to the complex was closed by occupation forces after Israeli police claimed there were Molotov cocktails on their posts inside the compound. However, the claim was denied by officials from the Islamic Waqf Committee who were responsible for the Muslim holy site.

Police said one Israeli officer was treated for breathing light smoke, while 10 suspects were arrested.

Police said two minors were linked to the attack and would be taken to the Jerusalem Judge Court on Wednesday to extend their detention, the Times of Israel reported.

The closing of the Complex triggered resistance from Muslims in Al-Quds.

Hamas insurgents in Gaza called on Palestinians to protest in a mass march to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to oppose the Israeli occupation decision to close and force the will of the pilgrims who want to enter and exit.

Tuesday’s incident received widespread criticism from world Muslim officials and expressed concern from the United Nations.

Palestinian officials accuse Israeli police of carrying out fire bombings.

Recently, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the closure and called it a dangerous Israeli escalation and warned of serious consequences.” (T/Sj/P2)
