UAE condemns closer of Al Aqsa Mosque, warns of consequences

Al -qsa mosque is located in Old City of Jerusalem.

"It was made a decision to gradually open the Temple Mount to worshippers, visitors and tourists beginning tomorrow afternoon (Sunday)", his office said in a statement after he consulted with security chiefs.

While highlighting the importance of the re-opening of al-Aqsa Mosque as soon as possible, Ghasemi called on all independent countries and the global community to put pressure on the Israeli regime so that the least rights of people in the occupied territories would be observed.

Activists and political parties on Saturday expressed outrage over the Israeli decision to close Al Haram Al Sharif compound in occupied Jerusalem until Sunday, banning Arabs and Muslims from entering the mosque and performing prayers.

The government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had announced that the compound would be reopened on Sunday.

Some 1,000 Jordanians have held a demonstration to vent their anger at Israel's closure of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound to Muslim worshippers following a deadly gunfight at the holy site.

Jordanian MP Kais Zayadin, rapporteur of the Foreign Affairs Committee in Parliament, wrote a post on social media calling on the worldwide community to set punishments for Israel, as it has "executed unarmed Palestinian citizens, without a trial".

As for how the Pelicans may fare with three of their top contributors now elsewhere, Milovich best describes that as a mixed bag. He got off to a slow start this season, but he was 2-0 with a 2.43 ERA in his last five appearances with the White Sox .

The Palestinian director of the Waqf (religious property) council, Abdel Azim Salhab, said the closure of the mosque compound was the "worst aggression since 1967".

The Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Palestinians fearing Israel may one day seek to assert further control over it.

The Ministry called on the global community to immediately move against the continuous Israeli aggressions on Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Jerusalem, as well as Israel's indifference to worldwide resolutions on Jerusalem and the occupied territories.

Jews who also consider it their most sacred site are allowed to visit but not pray there to avoid provoking tensions.

On Saturday, Israel said it would reopen the compound and equip it with metal detectors and cameras.

Over 300 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli force since October that year, when the clashes intensified.

Israeli authorities say most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks.
