Arab League chief says Israel 'playing with fire' over Jerusalem

Arab League chief says Israel 'playing with fire' over Jerusalem

"The Zionist occupiers' continued crackdown against Palestinians as well as the Israeli regime's violation of Palestinians' basic rights, particularly their religious freedoms and access to the holy sites in al-Quds, reveal. that the Zionist regime of Israel is the main symbol and source of state terrorism and scaremongering in the region", the spokesperson said.

Laub reported from the West Bank. Israel said it is investigating the deaths.

The mixed signals emerging from the Israeli side have contributed to the sense of confusion driving the crisis, during which Israeli ministers have reportedly overruled warnings from senior security officials about the risk of stoking a widening confrontation with the installation of the devices.

Gilad Erdan, Israel's public security minister, warned of potential "large-scale volatility" - a prospect made more likely in the West Bank by the absence of Abbas's help.

"Checks with metal detectors won't succeed", housing minister Yoav Gallant told the Ynet news agency.

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas confirmed that an earlier decision to freeze ties with Israel on "all levels" also included a halt to security coordination. "This is problematic - they are using it to booby-trap the area with potential for terrorism".

Muslim leaders and Palestinian political factions had urged the faithful to gather for a "day of rage" against the new security policies, which they see as changing delicate agreements that have governed the holy site for decades.

Aboul Gheit said that the past days proved that security considerations are not the real motive behind the recent Israeli actions in Jerusalem's Old City and al-Aqsa.

The metal detectors were put in after two Israeli police officers were killed there by Arab gunmen.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday condemned the clashes in which Israeli forces killed three Palestinians.

The Israel Defense Force also shared a photo of a Facebook post they said Abed wrote before the attack.

The Palestinians reject the Israeli incitement allegations, saying Israel's 50-year-old occupation of lands sought for a Palestinian state is at the root of widespread Palestinian anger and helps drive violence.

The meeting to be held on Monday, Egyptian and Swedish diplomats said on Saturday, according to Ahram Online. "We receive updates on the ground from them and recommendations on how to act and we decide accordingly", he said.

"We are conducting this calmly, determinedly and responsibly and we will continue to maintain our security", he added.

On Saturday, the Israeli government began dismantling the metal detectors. Ramallah Hospital director Ahmad Betawi said the man died of shrapnel wounds but could not define what kind without an autopsy. "The problem is that Netanyahu feels he's the boss and that the Temple Mount is ours".
