  • Palestinians chant slogans outside the Lions Gate a main entrance to Al Aqsa mosque compound

To protest Israeli policies in the Old City of Jerusalem, a so-called "Day of Rage" has been declared for Wednesday by the Fatah faction headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"Any restriction on Muslims entering Al-Aqsa Mosque is unacceptable", Erdogan said, adding that "the protection of the Islamic character and sanctity of Al-Quds [Jerusalem] and Al-Haram Al-Sharif [Al-Aqsa Mosque complex] is important for the whole Muslim world".

In a separate protest, the religious endowments and Al-Aqsa affairs, run by the Jordanian government, made a decision to close all the mosques in East Jerusalem on Friday and called for prayers in front of Al-Aqsa's gates to resist the metal detectors used by Israeli police.

We showed more belief in our abilities and our mindset changed. "I certainly don't take any added pressure", he added. When asked about India's success in the recent past, Shastri says the team deserves all the credit.

The Waqf, together with other Islamic groups, yesterday issued a statement calling on Muslim worshippers "to reject and boycott all the Israeli aggression measures, including changing the historical status quo including imposing the metal detectors".

According to WAFA, Abbas has made several contacts with world powers to discuss the ongoing Jerusalem tension.

The rioters are protesting the new security measures Israel introduced at the holy site in wake of Friday's terrorist attack which left two Israel policemen dead. Tel Aviv argues that the security upgrades will prevent weapons from being brought to the Temple Mount as referred to by Jews.

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

"We will never ever accept any changes in the mosque, and Israel has to put an end to this crisis by removing the metal detectors", he said. The Muslim religious authority charged with managing Temple Mount has also expressed its anger over metal detectors being installed at the site. The gunmen, all from the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm in central Israel, were subsequently shot and killed by the police. Conflicts over the holy site, revered by Muslims and Jews, have repeatedly triggered Israeli-Palestinian confrontations. Police closed the site briefly, reopening it 15 minutes later.

Both the Israelis and the Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital. The bishops said they mourned for those killed and deplored "the heightened tensions that such an attack can span". Areas [are] quiet and security measures continue.
