Erdogan says Muslims won't remain silent on Jerusalem crisis

Sheikh Najeh Bakirat, the director of al-Aqsa Mosque, said overnight on Tuesday that the move does not fulfil the demands of the Muslim worshippers as the security cameras are being kept. Erdogan called for calm and said attacking places of worship was "a big mistake".

At an earlier meeting on Sunday, the Israeli police presented a technological alternative to the metal detectors with sophisticated cameras combined with facial recognition software.

Israel on Tuesday was removing metal detectors from the entry to Jerusalem's holy site, which is known as the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims and Temple Mount to Jews, following days of violent clashes.

Three Palestinians were killed in clashes between protesters and Israeli officers Friday, and hours later, Israeli officials say a Palestinian attacker stabbed three Israelis to death in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. Those who are able must visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque of Jerusalem as recommended by the Prophet.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet made the decision, saying they would instead use less obtrusive surveillance at the Temple Mount, according to the BBC.

As word spread of the decision, a few hundred Palestinians gathered to celebrate at Lions Gate, near an entrance to the Temple Mount. Israeli police said they were investigating the charge.

The political analyst accused those who call for the Palestinian resistance to be involved in the ongoing battle in Jerusalem of trying to achieve the Israeli goals of "turning the eyes of the world from the Israeli crimes in Jerusalem".

When the Temple Mount was reopened, metal detectors were installed at each entrance. Muslim religious authorities say the metal detectors violate a delicate agreement on worship and security arrangements at the Jerusalem site and have urged Palestinians not to pass through.

"Israel said the guard had diplomatic immunity and both he and all the staff were confined to the embassy compound amid attempts to find a solution". During the incident, the Jordanian worker was killed, but the landlord was injured as well.

Trump's Mideast envoy, Jason Greenblatt, met with Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday in the administration's first high-level, on-the-ground engagement in the crisis. Muslims claimed Israel's real goal was to expand control at the site and subsequently launched mass protests. "I thank King Abdullah [II] as well for our close cooperation". At around the same time, it was announced that the embassy staff had returned to Israel.

After the removal of those metal detectors, Abbas might be willing to return to the status quo.
