Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) —  The Jerusalem Municipality

Districts Committee is sponsoring a campaign to prevent Muslims from entering the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque via legal means. The decision was taken after Municipality engineer Shlomo Ashkoul authorized a shut down of Bab al-Magarbeh Bridge, an access ramp from the Wailing Wall plaza to the Al-Aqsa compound, claiming the bridge’s structural integrity was compromised and not safe for use. Municipality lawyer Ya’ear Ghabai has begun collecting signatures for a petition seeking the demolition of the bridge in order to increase pressure on Islamic bodies to fall in line with Municipality orders.

Dung Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City is already under total control of Israeli forces, who allow only Jewish Israelis and tourists to enter the Al-Aqsa complex through the gate. Dung Gate is the same entrance to the complex that was used by former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon in 2000, accompanied by several hundred Israeli soldiers. The event is generally regarded as that which sparked the Second Intifada.
