FEBR 20 2012 WAFA

RAMALLAH, February 20, 2012 (WAFA) – The three Palestinian Arabic dailies Monday focused on the clashes between Israeli police and worshippers at al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem following attempts by extremist Jews to carry out provocative rituals at the Muslim holy site.

The main headline in Al-Ayyam said Israeli special forces stormed al-Aqsa compound following protests by Muslim worshippers and arrested 18 people.

This story also appeared on the front page of al-Hayat al-Jadida and al-Quds newspapers along with pictures of Israeli forces breaking into the compound in pursuit of the protesters and arresting some of them.

The top front page story in al-Quds with a headline highlighted in red was on Israeli reports revealing that settlers took over hundreds of dunums of Palestinian-owned land in area B, which is under Palestinian civil control and Israeli security control, in direct violation of the Oslo Accords.

President Mahmoud Abbas’ meeting with Sri Lankan envoy to the Middle East and lawmaker Namal Rajapaksa in Ramallah on Sunday was highlighted on the front page of al-Hayat al-Jadida daily with a picture of Abbas shaking hands with the envoy.

Al-Quds editorial slammed attempts by extremist Jews to provoke trouble at al-Aqsa compound under Israeli police protection. The daily addressed the Arab and Islamic nations calling on them to take effective and immediate steps to put an end to Israeli violations against Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem.
