Palestinians Call for a Day of Rage in Jerusalem

The Malay World Islamic World will submit letters of protest to the United Nations and the President of United States, Donald Trump to condemn the Israeli government's temporary closure of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Earlier, Palestinian worshippers clashed with Israeli security forces outside a gate to the Old City in Jerusalem.

Israel has defended the move, claiming they are no different from security measures at other holy sites around the world.

The latest escalation began last week when three Palestinian gunmen launched an attack from there, killing two Israeli policemen at a gate to the Muslim-administered compound.

But this week, the Waqf was boycotting the Temple Mount over Israel's decision to reinstall metal detectors at its entrances.

Arab-Israeli lawmakers joined the protesters and called for the metal detectors at the site to be removed.

Arab led riots erupted Tuesday night and Monday morning, following a call from imams and Palestinian leaders for a "Day of Rage", in response to the new security measures at the Temple Mount.

Many Muslims have been traveling to Jerusalem from Israel's peripheral regions ahead of Friday's protests, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.




He also said that these measures are a clear violation of worldwide human rights law.

Israel blames Palestinian leaders for incitement to violence while the Palestinians charge Israel's military occupation and attempts to change the delicate status quo at the contested holy site as the factors behind the violent attacks.

When the al-Aqsa compound reopened, metal detectors had been installed, which angered Muslim religious authorities.

"We should look at the facts and the truth - the installation of metal detectors does not constitute any change in the status quo".

The fate of the compound, holy to both Jews and Muslims, is an emotional issue and forms the centerpiece of rival Israeli and Palestinian national narratives. There have been clashes this week between police and Muslims outside the gates to the Temple Mount area. During that period, Israeli forces have killed more than 255 Palestinians, majority said by Israel to be attackers while others were killed in clashes with Israeli forces.

Jews revere the site, where the two Jewish temples stood in biblical times, as the Temple Mount.

Netanyahu said Israel is in close contact with Jordan, the traditional Muslim custodian of the site, to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.
