WAFA FEB 21 2012

JERUSALEM, February 21, 2012 (WAFA) – Confrontations erupted Tuesday afternoon between Israeli police and Palestinian worshipers at al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City after police allowed 22 extremist Jews to enter the Mosque compound, according to witnesses.

They said worshippers protested the entry of the extremists, who came in through Magarbeh Gate under police protection, provoking worshipers to clash with the police.

The worshippers chanted religious slogans at the extremists while police closed all gates of Mosques and deployed its troops inside it.

Calls were earlier made by Jewish extremists to visit the compound of al-Aqsa Mosque to perform religious rituals provoking calls by Muslims to confront them.

Police has been on high alert in the occupied city and banned Palestinians under the age of 40 from entering the Old City and al-Aqsa Mosque.
