Israeli Police Allow Extremist Jews on al-Aqsa Yards

WAFA FEBR 20 2012

JERUSALEM, February 20, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli police Monday allowed several extremist Jews on al-Aqsa Mosque yards in spite of tension in the area following clashes on Sunday between Palestinians and Israeli police, according to a Mosque guard.

He told WAFA that Israeli police stationed at Bab al-Magharbeh, the only gate of the compound through which non-Muslim visitors are allowed into the yards of the Mosque, allowed seven extremists to stroll its yards and facilities.

Several Muslim worshippers were injured during Sunday’s confrontations when police allowed extremist Jews to take a provocative tour of the compound, one of Islam’s holiest sites. Police also arrested several Palestinians under the pretext they threw stones at the police and extremists to prevent them from entering the compound.

Calls by Jewish extremists, particularly women groups, were also made to visit al-Aqsa Mosque on Tuesday to perform religious rituals provoking Palestinian nationalist and religious leaders in Jerusalem to call on Muslim women to gather in the mosque and confront them.
